BOURDEAUX HOSTS TRANSPORTATION SECRETARY BUTTIGIEG DURING GEORGIA VISIT

PEACHTREE CORNERS, GA — Today, Congresswoman Carolyn Bourdeaux (GA-07) hosted U.S. Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg for a tour of Curiosity Lab at Peachtree Corners, a hub of green technology and innovation in Georgia’s 7th District. Following the tour, local elected officials discussed their infrastructure priorities, and the groundwork that has already been laid in Peachtree Corners to advance these initiatives. 

“Infrastructure investments are good for our constituents, good for our economy, good for our environment, and an important step towards building a more equitable society,” said Congresswoman Bourdeaux. “The Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework accomplishes that feat by investing not only in roads and bridges, but in people. It’s not a partisan matter—we can address these challenges, preserve our environment, and sure up our infrastructure to improve our communities and leave a better world for future generations.”

During the facility tour, Secretary Buttigieg and Congresswoman Bourdeaux were joined by members of the Gwinnett and Forsyth County Boards of Commissioners, local transportation officials, and the Mayor of Peachtree Corners.

Congresswoman Bourdeaux has been actively engaged in supporting local efforts to develop clean energy and transportation solutions, and included many of these suburban infrastructure projects in her FutureFit the Suburbs initiatives. As a member of the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, Bourdeaux worked to include her community’s priorities within the INVEST Act, which passed the House last month. Bourdeaux also worked with the Problem Solvers Caucus to help develop the Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework.
