"This will allow President Biden to move forward with the infrastructure that's going to allow this economy to grow not just in the next decade, but the next 30 or 40 years," he said.

Hickenlooper also says he's working on making sure employers pay workers above the table and when companies compete for bids, the playing field is fair.
