Fontana Mayor Acquanetta Warren recently traveled to Washington, D.C., to attend President Biden’s signing of the $1.12 trillion infrastructure bill.
Warren was invited to help represent small to medium-sized cities, according to a statement on the city’s website.
Warren participated in several planning sessions while the bill was being put together, and she praised two members of the Inland Empires’ Congressional delegation – Rep. Pete Aguilar, D-San Bernardino, and Rep. Norma Torres, D-Ontario – for helping to get the bill passed.
Unlike past mass-spending bills, the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act isn’t aimed exclusively at helping big cities, Warren said.
“This bill will produce countless jobs for cities like Fontana,” Warren said in the statement. “It will improve roadways, transit systems, provide access to clean water and, for millions of Americans, improve their ability to access high-speed internet and bridge the digital divide.”
