Gianforte Votes Against Infrastructure Bill, Rejecting Millions of Good-Paying Jobs, Billions of Dollars for Broadband, Schools, and Housing
 
Helena, MT – Last week, the House of Representatives passed H.R. 2, the Moving Forward Act. The broad infrastructure bill would provide billions of dollars for increased rural broadband access, road and bridge repairs, affordable housing and more, and is estimated to create more than 2 million jobs. Rather than standing up for the proposed investments in Montana, Greg Gianforte voted no.  

This isn’t the first time that Greg Gianforte’s record in Congress has left Montanans with much to be desired. During this Congress, Gianforte has skipped more votes than 93% of his colleagues. Among the votes that Gianforte couldn’t be bothered to show up? $200 million for water pollution source management infrastructure, $5 million for school safety programs, and $2 million for programs to assist and protect children and families. When Gianforte wasn’t playing hooky, he voted against a $3.3 million grant for a high-speed broadband project in rural Beaverhead County, and then had the audacity to show up for the photo-op celebrating it.

“Time and time again, No Show Greg Gianforte is leaving Montanans with nothing to show from his time in Washington,” said MDP Deputy Communications Director Matt Fidel. “Greg Gianforte has been a No Show Congressman. Montana can’t afford to elect him as a No Show Governor.”
