DGA Statement on President Joe Biden’s State of the Union Address

From the Chair’s Desk

DGA Chair and North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper released the following statement on President Joe Biden’s State of the Union address:

“This evening, President Joe Biden delivered a message directly to the American people of how far we’ve come and how much more we can accomplish together. 

“In the face of unprecedented challenges, President Biden has delivered on his promise to provide relief for working families and grow the economy from the bottom up and middle out. Thanks to President Biden’s American Rescue Plan, entrepreneurship and business investment are rebounding, and the economy has achieved its fastest job growth in history and the fastest economic growth in nearly 40 years. 

“Like us Democratic governors, the president knows that crumbling roads and increased prices have a big impact on hardworking Americans. Thanks to the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, governors have the funds to fix roads and bridges and invest in much-needed broadband expansion. President Biden and Democratic governors are also laying out plans to lower costs for American families — because money back in people’s pockets can make a big difference. 

“Most importantly, the president looked ahead and urged Americans to be optimistic and unite to build a better future. He outlined his vision to grow the economy and invest in America, tackle the opioid crisis, address mental health challenges, and keep our promise to our veterans. 

“President Biden’s agenda delivers something for every American — and we look forward to implementing it in our states to improve the livelihoods of hardworking American families.”
