Colorado Congressional Rep. Boebert Introduces Real Infrastructure Bill

Washington, D.C. – -(AmmoLand.com)- Today, Congressman Lauren Boebert (CO-03) introduced the ‘America’s Infrastructure Modernization (AIM) Act‘ to fully fund real infrastructure without increasing federal spending or taxes.

Rep. Lauren Boebert stated:

“President Biden calls everything under the sun infrastructure, but only 6% of his $2.3 trillion so-called infrastructure plan goes to roads and bridges. The rest goes to climate change, increasing government bureaucracy, and unrelated liberal wish-list items. I introduced the AIM Act to offer a targeted, efficient infrastructure plan that works for America.”

“The AIM Act would reallocate $650 billion of the remaining $2.2 trillion of unspent COVID funds to fund roads, bridges, airports, ports, and other real infrastructure projects. There is no reason to increase taxes and waste trillions of dollars on a leftist slush fund when we have the ability to deliver real infrastructure results for the American people without raising their taxes.”

Background

On March 31st, President Biden proposed a $2.3 trillion dollar plan marketed as an overhaul of America’s infrastructure. Sadly, as the details emerged, it was clear this plan, much like the $1.9 trillion COVID relief package, was a trojan horse for Democrat spending, even including $50 billion for a new office for the U.S. Department of Commerce and $10 billion for a proposed “Civilian Climate Corps.”

The AIM Act is a fiscally responsible alternative to the Biden administration’s tax hike disguised as an infrastructure plan. The bill addresses America’s infrastructure needs while limiting the wasteful spending of unrelated so-called “social infrastructure” items. The AIM Act repurposes $650 billion in unobligated funds from the six enacted COVID relief bills and puts the money towards real infrastructure.

  1. Coronavirus Preparedness and Response Supplemental Appropriations Act
  2. Families First Coronavirus Response Act
  3. The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act
  4. Paycheck Protection Program and Health Care Enhancement Act
  5. Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021
  6. American Rescue Plan

The AIM Act would provide states with infrastructure grants in the same manner and proportion as the surface transportation block grant program. Eligible projects include:

  • Surface transportation
  • Port development projects
  • National highway performance program
  • Airport improvement projects.

Members of Congress that joined Congressman Boebert in introducing the AIM Act include:
Representatives Louie Gohmert (TX-01), Paul Gosar (AZ-04) and Scott Perry (PA-10).

I have a suggestion for an infrastructure plan. How about money aimed toward establishing new public shooting ranges in communities where one does not already exist, and for expanding and modernizing those that do?

CinciJim

With bonus money for public ranges that offer free firearms training and safety courses, to help remove the stigma that the left is putting on gun legal ownership.

Bill

My only hesitation is where the government decides policy for ranges, having used taxpayer funds to build or support them. Private ranges can at least argue about government regulation, but government-based ranges can’t, not easily.

CinciJim

This proposed bill actually makes sense, so it’s highly unlikely it will be considered in Never Nancy’s House. Even if it makes it to a vote, it’s just too much common sense for the lefties to grasp. They’re all scratching their heads wondering why anyone would ever want to make better use of monies already available when they can just go for more tax & spending programs and expand the Federal government, too.

hoss

Biden is a traitor to this nation, and has always been a traitor. Before he became the resident of the White House he sold his office to the highest bidder, and was backed by none other than Obama, the then Pres. Now that the Commie Rat Bastards have stolen the election, this country is done!
There is only one way back, and that is through God.

The correct term for a “group” of baboons is… a “congress.” (True!)

And that explains a lot!

Lauren Boebert the only voice of reason and she’s new. My question is what have all of the incumbents been doing to reel in Biden? Apparently nothing.

Sounds like “common sense” legislation to me. Rep Boebert appears to be right on track with the American taxpayer who will fund this and benefit from it. Thank you. keep it up !

Bill

I really like the way she thinks. I hope she runs for president someday.
