Democratic Congressman John Larson says Congress has to do more to fix up the country’s infrastructure–especially the parts that are holding back water from towns and neighborhoods.
Larson took to the House floor Tuesday and said that local governments in Hartford and East Hartford need more federal support for levee repairs.
“Congress cannot continue to sleep while our infrastructure erodes from underneath us,” he said in a statement afterward. “We must come together and invest in our infrastructure to ensure the American people are safe, secure and back to work.”
