Dear Jon Tester: Don’t Put #Resistance First On Infrastructure

Christiana Purves - February 23, 2018

Last week, President Trump announced his long-term plan to improve the nation’s crumbling infrastructure with a focus on improving rural communities. Jon Tester has acknowledged the need for a bipartisan, long-term legislative solution on this important issue in the past, but has spent the majority of President Trump’s term obstructing any real bipartisan legislative fixes by playing partisan games.

Jon Tester has agreed that investments in transportation, water infrastructure and broadband are important for Montanans. So, will Tester finally work with President Trump and Congress to deliver another win for the American people? Or will he continue partisan games at his constituents’ expense?

Red State Democrats Including Jon Tester Have Touted The Benefits That Investments In Transportation And Broadband Have On Rural Areas, Noting They "Stronger Rural Communities" And "Create Jobs"

In February 2013, Tester Claimed That Investing In Rural Infrastructure Projects Like Clean Water, Roads, And Bridges "Builds Stronger Rural Communities That Grow, Create Jobs, And Turn Challenges Into Opportunities." "'My message in Washington is this: smart investments in rural America are not wasteful spending,' Tester told the audience. 'Investing in clean water, in roads and bridges, builds stronger rural communities that grow, create jobs, and turn challenges into opportunities.'" (Press Release, "Tester Addresses Rural Water Systems Conference," Sen. Jon Tester , 2/21/13)

Quality infrastructure is integral to Montana’s rural communities and economy. Tell Jon Tester to stand with President Trump and the GOP-led Congress to provide quality of life improvements for Montanans.
