Rep. Trone Statement Following President Biden’s First Joint Address to Congress 

WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman David Trone (MD-06) issued the below statement following President Biden’s first Joint Address to Congress: 

“Tonight, the American people heard directly from the President that our country is on track to crush COVID and build back better. 

“With just 100 days in office, the Biden-Harris Administration has begun to restore compassion, civility, and competence to the White House with strong bipartisan support from Americans across the country.

“In order to continue rebuilding and investing in our nation, our top priority in Congress must be passing President Biden’s American Jobs Plan and American Families Plan — sweeping investments in our nation’s infrastructure that will bring our roads, bridges, and transportation systems into the 21st century, create millions of good-paying jobs, and ensure children and families receive the investment they deserve.

“As our nation continues to heal from this pandemic, we also cannot forget about the addiction and mental health crises that have been exacerbated by COVID, the need to reform our unjust criminal justice system, and the importance of investing in medical research so we are ready if another public health crisis like the COVID pandemic hits us again. In order to make real change in this nation we need sustained, long-term investment to create a better future for our children.

“We have a long road ahead of us, but I’m confident that we will come out of this pandemic stronger than ever under President Biden’s leadership. Let’s get to work.”

Congressman David Trone was elected to the House of Representatives in November 2018 to serve the 6th District of Maryland, which includes all or part of Montgomery, Frederick, Washington, Allegany, and Garrett Counties. Trone serves on the Appropriations, Veterans’ Affairs, and Joint Economic Committees in the 117th Congress and previously served on the Education and Labor and Foreign Affairs Committees. In Congress, Trone is fighting to make progress on issues that matter to Marylanders, including the mental health and addiction crises, criminal justice reform, and funding for medical research.
