“Thank you, Madame Speaker. The Build Back Better Act addresses the urgent challenges that workers, families, and businesses face every day. 

“With provisions just within the jurisdiction of the Education and Labor Committee, the bill makes child care affordable and secures universal preschool for three- and four-year olds, lowering the costs of working families and boosting our economy by helping parents re-enter the workforce.

“It also allows 9 million more children to receive healthy school meals.

“It lowers the cost of prescription drugs. And it lowers the cost of higher education. 

“And through investments of high-quality job training programs, it gives workers more opportunities and enhances the skills of our workforce.

“Madame Speaker, the Build Back Better Act is a historic proposal that will lower the costs for nearly every American family, creates good-paying jobs, and sets a strong foundation for the future of this country – and it is paid for.

“I encourage all of our colleagues to support this bill, and I yield back the balance of my time.”
