      On Monday, President Biden signed the $1.2 trillion bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act into law. The measure will deliver $550 billion in new federal spending over 5-years and will direct $650 billion in already appropriated dollars into new and existing funding programs for project development that includes:

      • Modernizing electric utility grids;
      • Building and repairing roads, bridges, and major infrastructure projects;
      • Developing critical minerals;
      • Upgrading railways;
      • Deploying climate resiliency and environmental remediation projects;
      • Upgrading and expanding broadband;
      • Updating water systems, including lead pipe removal;
      • Expanding electric public transportation and charging station infrastructure;
      • Establishing transportation projects in rural areas; and
      • Revitalizing airports, ports, and waterways.
