Rebuilding America: The Next Phase of Infrastructure
The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act provides a once-in-a-generation opportunity to modernize America’s infrastructure.
President Biden signed the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act into law on November 15, 2021, boosting America’s global competitiveness and improving the quality of life for all Americans.
This new legislation is the single largest investment in bridges since construction of the Interstate Highway System, will help connect 14 million Americans to broadband, provide clean drinking water for 10 million families, upgrade our energy grid, and grow our economy. It is also the single largest investment in innovation, efficiency, and resiliency to address climate change in U.S. history.
