May 28, 2021
Press Release
FLINT—Congressman Dan Kildee (MI-05), Chief Deputy Whip of the House Democratic Caucus and member of the House Budget Committee, issued the following statement after President Joe Biden released his Fiscal Year (FY) 2022 budget:

“A budget is a true statement of priorities and values. President Biden’s budget demonstrates he is committed to fighting for working-class families, not the wealthiest Americans. The President’s proposed budget makes critical investments to end this pandemic, rebuild our economy and protect the Great Lakes. 

“I am pleased to see President Biden’s budget include robust efforts to rebuild our infrastructure, including our roads, bridges and water systems, as well as invest in American manufacturing. I have been working closely with the White House to put more electric vehicles on the road, which will support Michigan manufacturing jobs and propel our automotive industry into the future, while also combatting climate change. 

“I strongly support President Biden’s proposal to remove every lead pipe in America and ensure clean drinking water. There are many lessons from the Flint water crisis, including that we must get more serious about rebuilding our outdated infrastructure. 

“As a member of the House Budget committee, I look forward to continuing to work with President Biden and Vice President Harris to enact this bold vision.”
