Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act Passes
Updated On: Nov 19, 2021

With President Biden’s official signature on the bipartisan bill, Infrastructure Week is finally here.

The passage of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act is a monumental political and legislative accomplishment. This is a $1.2 trillion investment in our infrastructure after decades of decline, and America’s workers are ready to rebuild our country.

This is a tremendous victory for working people in America:

  • $110 billion to rebuild 173,000 miles of roads and 45,000 bridges.
  • $65 billion to expand broadband internet access, particularly in rural areas.
  • $55 billion to make sure Americans have access to safe and clean water, including $15 billion to replace lead pipes.

There’s even more in the bill, and all of this investment will create good union jobs. And that is worth celebrating.

Working people didn’t vote for a return to normal; we voted for a better future. And we’re making progress.

Now we need to finish the job by also passing the Build Back Better Act.
