Schumer, Velazquez look to Hispanic Federation for Build Back Better support ahead of Congress vote


Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer joined Representative Nydia Velazquez and the Hispanic Federation Monday to discuss the impact the Build Back Better Agenda, if passed, and the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act will have on the Latino community.

Fresh off the plane from a weekend in Puerto Rico for the SOMOS conference, and just a few days after the Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill passed in the House, Schumer was all smiles on Nov. 8 and ready to tout the benefits the Build Back Better Agenda (which Democrats hope to pass by Thanksgiving) will have for Hispanic New Yorkers and the state as a whole.
