WASHINGTON, D.C. (WTRF) — Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (R) of West Virginia released a video on Twitter today explaining why she supports the the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act bill, saying it will improve roads, bridges, airports, broadband and more in the Mountain State.

Capito also retweeted a video of her speaking on the Senate floor, saying she plans to vote for the infrastructure bill today and says it will benefit West Virginia and the entire nation.

I’m a West Virginian and all West Virginians and all Americans will benefit from the roads, bridges, water infrastructure, broadband and other modes of core infrastructure that will be financed through this bill.

But I believe something more foundational than infrastructure is at stake here. We need to demonstrate to the American people that we can work together in this Congress to pass major legislation that benefits our country…
