Queens lawmakers highlight federal infrastructure bill and critical funding for the borough


Congresswoman Grace Meng and Queens Borough President Donovan Richards held a virtual press conference on Monday, Dec. 20, hailing the recent enactment of the federal infrastructure bill, and called for funding from the measure to be directed toward improving local infrastructure in the borough.

Meng helped pass the historic and bipartisan legislation through the House of Representatives last month. The congresswoman joined President Biden at the White House when he signed the $1.2 trillion measure into law.
