Maryland Democratic Party updates
Neighboring States Days of Action:
The Maryland Democratic Party is helping out our neighboring states in their upcoming state elections being held this November. Each State has its own challenges, with New Jersey attempting to successfully re-elect a Democratic Governor for the first time in 40 years, and Virginia fighting to keep control of their state government.
To help out, we will be holding phone banks on the following dates:

President Biden’s infrastructure deal
The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act is a once-in-a-generation investment that will help grow our economy, create jobs and position American workers to succeed. Take a quick look at what’s in this bill:
Modernizing our nation’s infrastructure — Over $100 billion will go toward upgrading our worn-down bridges and highways. This bill will also make the largest federal investment in passenger rail since the creation of Amtrak.
Expanding broadband — This bill will help ensure that every American household has access to affordable, reliable high-speed internet -- because internet is infrastructure.
Tackling the climate crisis — We’re making the largest investment in clean energy and electric vehicle infrastructure in history -- electrifying thousands of school and transit buses across the country.
Providing clean drinking water — This bill marks the largest investment in clean drinking water and wastewater infrastructure in American history -- and will help replace all of the nation’s lead pipes and deliver clean drinking water to millions of families.
The bill not only signals to the world that our democracy can function, deliver and do big things -- it demonstrates what is possible when Democrats are leading the charge.
