Biden Picks Former New Orleans Mayor to Oversee Implementation Of Infrastructure Bill

President Biden has Selected former New Orleans Mayor, Mitch Landrieu, to Oversee the Implementation of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill.

Landrieu's role Underscores the Substantial Effort that Officials say, will take to Enact the Legislation.

Biden and Congressional Democrats hope to have some Tangible Benefit from the New Law, before Next Year's Midterm Elections, but are mindful that the Appearance of Wasted Money, could sour the Public on a Package that, for now, remains widely Popular.

"I am thankful to the President and honored to be tasked with coordinating the largest infrastructure investment in generations," Landrieu said in a Statement. "Our work will require strong partnerships across the government and with state and local leaders, business and labor to create good-paying jobs and rebuild America for the middle class. We will also ensure these major investments achieve the President's goals of combating climate change and advancing equity."

The White House Statement pointed to the Democrat's previous Roles as New Orleans Mayor and Lieutenant-Governor of Louisiana, saying he "knows what it's like to lead at the state level and will be able to work with and relate to governors and other state officials."

The President said: "We owe it to the American people to make sure the money in this infrastructure plan and the Build Back Better plan -- which, God willing, we're going to be able to still finish -- will be able to be used for purposes it was intended".

Both Transportation Secretary, Pete Buttigieg, and Commerce Secretary, Gina Raimondo, have said they expect to Hire a significant number of People, in their Departments, in the months ahead.
