There is strong bipartisan support for rebuilding America's crumbling infrastructure, but not for trillions in new spending unrelated to this issue. It’s time to focus on true infrastructure and take bipartisan action for the American people.
Governor Hogan appeared on CNBC’s “Squawk Box” and The Hugh Hewitt Show to discuss infrastructure and Maryland’s balanced approach to the COVID-19 crisis. According to Governor Hogan, Maryland has continued to find the “middle ground” in the pandemic, lifting capacity limits to help restaurants and businesses get back on their feet while keeping in place the mask mandate and other safety measures. Governor Hogan also discussed his push to pass a bipartisan federal infrastructure bill, arguing “if Washington can’t find a way to work together on this issue, then I don’t know where we will.
Governor Hogan joined CNN “State of the Union” to discuss Maryland’s “balanced approach” to reopening safely and the recent rise in hate crimes against Asian Americans. Over the past year, hate crimes against Asian Americans have spiked over 150%. Governor Hogan called this disturbing trend “unacceptable,” noting that his Korean-American wife, three daughters, and grandkids have all “felt some discrimination personally.” Watch Governor Hogan on CNN “State of the Union” Here
Governor Hogan penned an op-ed in USA Today, urging leaders in Washington to not miss the opportunity to pass a bipartisan infrastructure bill. According to Governor Hogan, despite promises of unity from President Biden, “we’ve yet to see anything more than bipartisan words from the president…Democratic leaders seemed more interested in loading up the [COVID relief] bill with pet projects for special interest groups than actually securing any Republican votes.”
