Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Ranking Member Sam Graves (R-MO) statement on the President’s State of the Union address:

“In the face of international turmoil, President Biden took a premature victory lap tonight on his massive infrastructure spending law.  He failed to acknowledge that the true value of this investment is plummeting due to 40-year-high inflation and ongoing supply chain issues – issues that are exacerbated and prolonged by his administration’s woke policies.  While the price of everything – from gas and diesel, to food and clothing, to construction materials needed for roads and bridges – remains on the rise, Russia’s unprovoked invasion of Ukraine further underscores the need for the Administration to tackle out-of-control spending and inflation, restore our energy independence, and stop creating more red tape that increases infrastructure costs.”
