U.S. Representative Veronica Escobar to discuss jobs legislation and build better on Wednesday

U.S. Representative Veronica Escobar D-El Paso will be in town this week to answer questions and clear up any confusion about two bills in Congress: the Rebuild Better bill and the Law on investment in infrastructure and employment.

The law was enacted by President Joe Biden on November 15 and will improve infrastructure such as streets and airports, and invest in renewable energy sectors to create clean energy and jobs.

“I think it is important for our community to understand how the law on investment in infrastructure and jobs will impact our lives and future generations in El Paso,” said Tuesday Peter Svarzbein, representative of the District 1 City Council and Pro Tempore Mayor, in a press release. Escobar is a guest speaker for the December 1 district community meeting.

People can also watch the livestream on the El Paso City Council District 1 Facebook page.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to ask questions about Build Back Better, a bill that has passed the US House of Representatives but has not yet passed the Senate. The bill aims to invest in small businesses, make health care more affordable, fund the fight against climate change and other social and economic problems.

The House of Representatives passed the Build Back Better bill on November 19.
