Federal Infrastructure Investments and Latino Communities

When Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg recently said some of our infrastructure is built on racism, he reignited a long battle to lay bare the truth about how America's highways and other infrastructure was designed to keep minorities down. The new Infrastructure Bill in Congress seeks to remedy that at least partially.

The session begins with an interview of Secretary Pete Buttigieg, moderated by NHCSL President, Senator Daniel Ivey-Soto (NM).
