U.S. Government Pushes for $1 Trillion Infrastructure Bill

The U.S. government has embarked on a campaign to promote the Biden administration’s proposed $1 trillion infrastructure bill. The bill is aimed at refurbishing the airports, bridges, and roads across the country while also seeking to reduce emissions.

In November 2021, several grants aimed at such improvements were approved, including $12 million for the Port of Tampa, $24.5 million for the reconstruction of roads connecting to a major amusement park in Ohio, and $20 million to complete the connection of the Nevada Pacific Parkway to the Union Pacific Railroad and Burlington Northern Santa Fe rail lines.

White House Infrastructure Coordinator Mitch Landrieu stated that a widespread effort will be put into touting the bill during visits to states across the nation. He claimed that U.S. government agencies are working closely will local authorities to fund and launch infrastructure programs.

On Tuesday, U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg will embark on a four-day tour of Florida, Minnesota, Nevada, New Hampshire, Oklahoma, and Ohio in an effort to engage with local populations on the proposed legislation. To date, the administration has funded over 5,000 projects, amounting to over $113 billion in investments.
