Girls_with_Book_BagIs Your child’s school building clean, dry, quiet, and ready for learning?  Support Rebuild America’s Schools Act of 2017 (HR 2475).

The Rebuild America’s Schools Act would invest $100 billion to create over 1.9 million jobs by addressing critical physical and digital infrastructure needs in schools. Upon enactment, this bill would: · Create a $70 billion grant program and $30 billion tax credit bond program targeted at high-poverty schools with facilities that pose health and safety risks to students and staff. · Leverage federal, state, and local resources for an overall investment of $107 billion, creating over 1.9 million jobs based on an Economic Policy Institute analysis that each $1 billion spent on construction creates 17,785 jobs. · Develop a comprehensive national database on the condition of public school facilities; such a national database currently does not exist and would provide much-needed insight into the condition of our public schools. · Expand access to high-speed broadband to ensure that public schools have the reliable and high-speed Internet access they need for digital learning.
