ReBuild USA—a national nonpartisan organization—launched a major, statewide digital advertising campaign in Pennsylvania July 21 to call on Congress to rebuild America and the middle class by rebuilding the nation's infrastructure. The advertising campaign targets Pennsylvania voters and encourages them to contact their Members of Congress and tell them to act on federal infrastructure projects.  Across key states, including Pennsylvania, the campaign is backed by six figures.

 

ReBuild USA is committed to pushing for better infrastructure—and the jobs that come with it—throughout the United States. Earlier this year, the American Society of Civil Engineers gave the United States a D+ grade for the collective state of the nation's infrastructure— highlighting the poor condition of our roads, bridges, energy systems, waterways and more.

 

"By fixing our roads, bridges, and broken water systems in Pennsylvania and across the country, Congress can support our workforce and take real steps in rebuilding America and our middle class," said Brent Booker, Secretary Treasurer of North America's Building Trades Unions, which is supporting the national campaign of ReBuild USA. "It's far past time that Washington acted on infrastructure— too many of our roads and bridges are crumbling, our children's schools are in disrepair, and every day there's reports of our water systems in decay and our national energy grid at risk. Let's put highly-skilled, trained men and women across Pennsylvania to work on federal infrastructure projects and rebuild our nation."
