NC GOP Put Their Agenda In Question By Bucking Funding to Bolster Supply Chains

Every member of North Carolina’s Republican U.S. House delegation voted against funding to strengthen our country’s supply chains

Last week, the Biden-Harris administration announced that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will invest $14 billion from President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and other appropriations to strengthen port and waterway supply chains in North Carolina and across the country. 

While Republicans in Congress, including Reps. Greg Murphy (NC-03), Virginia Foxx (NC-05), David Rouzer (NC-07), Richard Hudson (NC-08), Dan Bishop (NC-09), Patrick McHenry (NC-10), Madison Cawthorn (NC-11), Ted Budd (NC-13), have spent recent months railing against supply chain issues, President Biden and Democrats have sought solutions by passing the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law into law – an historic bill that secures unprecedented investments to bolster the nation’s supply chain, provide significant new economic opportunities nationwide, and strengthen our defenses against climate change. 

“After all their complaining, you’d think that Republicans would do everything in their power to address supply chain issues on behalf of their constituents. The fact that every member of North Carolina’s U.S. House delegation voted against the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law’s funding to strengthen supply chains begs the question – is the GOP’s agenda meaningless? Obstruction is the name of the game for the Republican Party while President Biden and Democrats continue to deliver for working families,” said NCDP Spokesperson Ellie Dougherty.
