Madison, Wis. — Today, Senator Ron Johnson voted against the bipartisan infrastructure bill, once again putting his self-serving agenda ahead of Wisconsin. The bill provides crucial investments to fix roads and bridges, ensures Wisconsinites have access to clean drinking water, expands broadband access particularly in rural areas, would create good jobs and supports small businesses. In response to Johnson’s vote, Democratic Party of Wisconsin Senate Communications Advisor Philip Shulman released the following statement:

“It’s no wonder Ron Johnson’s standing with Wisconsinites is crumbling as he continues to put his self-serving agenda above all else. What’s best for Wisconsin isn’t even an afterthought for Ron Johnson as he refuses to even debate bipartisan legislation that would be a boon for the state’s workers, small businesses, and economy.”

The Senate’s bipartisan infrastructure bill builds on Gov. Evers’ historic investments in Wisconsin’s infrastructure. Between 2019 and 2020 alone there were repairs made to over 1,000 miles of highway and more than 800 bridges have repairs completed or underway.
