Senator Hassan Visits Apprenticeship Training Center in Brentwood to Discuss Importance of Infrastructure Investments

BRENTWOOD – U.S. Senator Maggie Hassan today visited the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades Training (IUPAT) Center in Brentwood, where she spoke with union leaders and apprentices about the importance of infrastructure investments to help create good-paying jobs for Granite Staters. The Senate recently passed a bipartisan bill that Senator Hassan helped to negotiate that would provide major investments to help address New Hampshire’s aging infrastructure and create jobs that help benefit union members.

 

“I was glad to have the opportunity to tour IUPAT’s training center in Brentwood, which is helping to strengthen our workforce by providing opportunities for apprentices to master their skills and learn new ones,” Senator Hassan said. “As we discussed during my visit, the bipartisan infrastructure bill that I worked to negotiate would both provide new opportunities for workers and repair New Hampshire's aging roads and bridges. I will continue working with members of both parties to get this once-in-a-generation bill signed into law so that we can quickly move forward to repair our infrastructure and create good-paying jobs for Granite Staters.”

 

"It was great to have Senator Hassan visit our Brentwood training center to discuss the importance of passing this historic infrastructure bill that will help create jobs for our members,” said Roger Brunelle, Political Director for IUPAT District Council 35. “The apprentices at our center are working hard to gain the skills that they need to enter the workforce, and the investments in this infrastructure bill will make those skills even more valuable. I'm grateful to have Senator Hassan fighting for our best interest in Congress, and I know that she is focused on getting this bill over the finish line."

 

Senator Hassan was part of the bipartisan group who worked to negotiate and pass the historic infrastructure bill through the Senate. Senator Hassan worked closely on provisions in the bill related to passenger rail, high-speed internet access, coastal resilience, and cybersecurity.
