The meeting will promote the adoption of a bipartisan infrastructure package worth $ 1 trillion to provide new funding for roads, bridges, broadband and other priorities.

TOLEDO, Ohio – A local union is holding a town hall meeting this week to discuss the $ 1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill passed in the Senate earlier this week.

Congressman Marcy Kaptur and Secretary of Labor Martin J. Walsh will attend the community meeting, held at Laborer’s Local 500 Training Center in south Toledo.

The town hall is being held to encourage the passage of an infrastructure bill that has yet to be dealt with in the House of Representatives.

Earlier this week, the Senate passed the bill with 69 votes to 30.

The Senate bill provides nearly $ 550 billion in new spending on roads, bridges, broadband internet, water pipes, and other public construction systems over five years.
