Congressman Johnson’s Statement on President Joe Biden’s Joint Address to Congress
DECATUR, GA – Congressman Hank Johnson (GA-04) issued the following statement after President Joe Biden delivered his Address to a Joint Session of Congress tonight in Washington.
“President Biden delivered a powerful rundown expressing just how far we’ve come as a nation in his first 100 days in office to crush the virus, put vaccines in arms, get kids back in school safely and get people back in jobs. The progress we’ve made is remarkable, but as the President said: we have more work to do to rebuild our transportation and infrastructure sectors and build America back better. Not just brick and mortar projects but investing in our human capital – especially women of color who have been disproportionately harmed by the pandemic and the broader structural inequities in our economy. I look forward to joining the President and First Lady tomorrow in Gwinnett County to celebrate our successes and triumphs, and also to reaffirm our commitment to the bi-partisanship and hard work that lies ahead of us in Congress and as a nation. Without Georgia voters – particularly in Georgia’s Fourth -- none of this transformational recovery would have been possible.”
Congressman Johnson is a senior member of House Judiciary Committee and the Chairman of the Judiciary Subcommittee on Courts, Intellectual Property and the Internet. He is also a senior member of the Transportation & Infrastructure Committee and the House Oversight and Reform Committee. Georgia’s 4th Congressional District includes parts of DeKalb, Gwinnett and Newton counties and all of Rockdale County.
