Rural Minnesota wins with Build Back Better
The Build Back Better Act passed in the U.S. House on Friday morning, a big achievement to be noted, and this legislation still has a journey through the Senate.
The true celebration will be when this investment reaches the homes and lives of people across America. Rural Minnesotan families will see the benefit of universal pre-K, affordable daycare, paid family & medical leave, and continued monthly child tax credit. Lower healthcare and prescription drug costs. Daily driving can be more affordable with EV rebates rural Minnesotans can really use. Support for housing assistance needed in growing rural communities. Help for rural electric co-ops to clean up their electricity production, making power cheaper for their member-owners. The biggest investment ever in real climate solutions that will create good-paying jobs in rural places.
Together with the bipartisan infrastructure bill, the Build Back Better Act is the investment we need in our rural places and people.
