Rep. Holmes Norton Says Biden Infrastructure Plan Would ‘Reduce Automobile Usage’ to Combat Climate Change

‘We’re investing in pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure, if you really want to reduce, really want to get at climate change’

President Biden's infrastructure plan would "reduce automobile usage" to combat climate change, said D.C. Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton at a Capitol Hill news conference Wednesday following a White House meeting on infrastructure between the president and congressional leaders.

Norton, the District's non-voting member of Congress, thanked Biden for setting a goal to reach net zero carbon emissions by 2050.

"Now that we have the House, the Senate and the presidency, c'mon, let's get it finally done," said Norton about passing an infrastructure bill that reflects Biden's American Jobs Plan.
