WASHINGTON, D.C. - The following statement can be attributed to U.S. Chamber of Commerce Executive Vice President and Chief Policy Officer Neil Bradley regarding passage of the Fiscal Year 2022 Appropriations legislation.

“The U.S. Chamber welcomes passage of long-overdue funding for the remainder of fiscal year 2022, as well as crucial support for Ukraine. The business community supports strong actions in response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. We are pleased this bipartisan legislation provides much-needed assistance for Ukraine and its suffering people through humanitarian, military, and economic aid. Enactment of this bill will also contribute to our economic recovery and future growth here at home. Specifically, the legislation provides full funding for the landmark Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, extends important visa programs such as EB-5, closes the visibility gap between the federal government and private sector on cyber threats to critical infrastructure, and maintains longstanding policy riders. We thank the Members of Congress who negotiated and helped pass this important legislation.”
