PRESIDENT BIDEN SIGNED HISTORIC INFRASTRUCTURE BILL
On November 15, 2021, surrounded by a bipartisan group of Congressional leaders, President Biden signed the $1.2 trillion Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) into law. The legislation represents the single largest transportation package in US history, providing $550 billion in new spending. The legislation will invest $106.9 billion in transit, the largest investment in public transit in U.S. history, and reauthorize the surface transportation program for the next five years. This investment will increase the focus on climate change mitigation, resilience, equity, and safety for all users, including cyclists and pedestrians. See details here.
