Dear Tammy Baldwin: Don’t Put #Resistance First On Infrastructure

Christiana Purves - February 23, 2018

Last week, President Trump announced his long-term plan to improve the nation’s crumbling infrastructure with a focus on improving rural communities. Tammy Baldwin has acknowledged the need for a bipartisan, long-term legislative solution on this important issue in the past, but has spent the majority of President Trump’s term obstructing any real bipartisan legislative fixes by playing partisan games.

Tammy Baldwin has agreed that investments in transportation, water infrastructure and broadband are important for Wisconsinites. So, will Baldwin finally work with President Trump and Congress to deliver another win for the American people? Or will she continue partisan games at her constituents’ expense?

Red State Democrats Including Tammy Baldwin Have Agreed That Broadband Access Is "Vital" And "Essential" To The Rural Communities

In July 2015, Senator Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) Stated That "Expanding And Improving Broadband Service Is Vital To Growing Rural Economies In Wisconsin." "'The internet is built for faster speeds, and if we don't keep up the pace of investment in rural communities, they will be left behind. Expanding and improving broadband service is vital to growing rural economies in Wisconsin and this is important support for our state,' said Senator Baldwin, a member of the Appropriations Subcommittee on Agriculture." (Press Release, "U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin Applauds USDA Funding For Rural Broadband In Wisconsin," Sen. Tammy Baldwin , 7/24/15)

IN THEIR STATES, RED STATE DEMOCRATS HAVE VARIOUS INFRASTRUCTURE PROJECTS THEY SUPPORT THAT ARE IN DIRE NEED OF FEDERAL FUNDING

In Wisconsin, The Top Three Requested Statewide Infrastructure Projects Will Cost At Least $750 Million

In Wisconsin, The National Governor's Association And The State Of Wisconsin Asked For $300 Million For The I-94 North South Corridor Section Of Highway. (Will Craft, "More Than 500 Infrastructure Projects Are Pitched To Trump, Who Will Favor Private Money And Speed," APM , 5/11/17)

In Wisconsin, The National Governor's Association And The State Of Wisconsin Asked For $300 Million For The Zoo Interchange North Leg. (Will Craft, "More Than 500 Infrastructure Projects Are Pitched To Trump, Who Will Favor Private Money And Speed," APM , 5/11/17)

In Wisconsin, The National Governor's Association And The State Of Wisconsin Asked For $150 Million For The Expansion Of I-39/90. (Will Craft, "More Than 500 Infrastructure Projects Are Pitched To Trump, Who Will Favor Private Money And Speed," APM , 5/11/17)

Quality infrastructure is integral to Wisconsin’s rural communities and economy. Tell Tammy Baldwin to stand with President Trump and the GOP-led Congress to provide quality of life improvements for Wisconsinites.
