CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) - During her stop at Boomerang in Anamosa on Friday, Rep. Ashely Hinson (R-IA1) discussed the stalled infrastructure bill in Congress.

Hinson said, right now, they are at an impasse. She said Republicans would support an infrastructure bill at the right price tag.

“The number one thing that I’m hearing from people is they’re concerned about spending,” Hinson said. “Government spending is at a really high rate right now. Over $7 trillion in proposed spending in just this year. So I think, when you’re seeing inflation, you’re seeing talks of these proposed spending packages, that’s why I keep bringing it back to targeted investments and targeted spending.”

Hinson would like to see the money go towards roads and airport projects.
