The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act

Resource Page

The House approved a historic bipartisan investment in American infrastructure -– an investment that will move this country into the future.

Americans everywhere deserve safe drinking water, secure and efficient energy sources, and reliable bridges and roads that are resilient against today’s cyber, extreme weather, and climate challenges. America’s engineering firms take these goals and turn aspiration into reality. This bill will provide the funding necessary to improve lives today and unlock our potential for a brighter tomorrow.
