This is the May 22, 2019 hearing on "LIFT [Leading Infrastructure for Tomorrow's] America: Modernizing Our Infrastructure for the Future," held before the U.S. House Committee on Energy and Commerce. From the opening statement of Frank Pallone, Jr.: "Two of our committee's top priorities are strengthening the economy and combating climate change. One of the best ways for Congress to address both of these priorities now is by rebuilding and modernizing our Nation's crumbling infrastructure. [...] [W]e are discussing the Leading Infrastructure for Tomorrow's America Act, or the LIFT America Act, which was introduced last week by all 31 committee Democrats. This is a comprehensive bill that addresses critical infrastructure needs across our entire committee's jurisdiction. It will strengthen our economy for the future by creating good-paying jobs and investing in critical clean energy, broadband, drinking water, and healthcare infrastructure. So as we continue to develop a comprehensive plan to address climate change, there are many actions we can take now to reduce carbon pollution immediately." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Brian Wahler, Mignon L. Clyburn, Jessica Eckdish, Daniel A. Lyons, Christopher Guith, and John Auerbach.
