“What we hope to do is a bipartisan bill that would create a vehicle for the private sector to invest in infrastructure.”

Gillibrand also discussed the Made in America bill, contending it was more cost efficient to keep jobs in the country rather than send them oversees.

“The quality of work is better here.”

Congressman Bill Owens (D-Plattsburgh) also spoke at the event.

He said the Beyond the Border agreement moves goods more quickly through the border with the proper level of security. Moving goods efficiently and security is something that must be balanced, he said.

“We think it is important to recognize the impact Canada has on our communities and the entire U.S.,” Owens said.
