Pres. Joe Biden signs bipartisan infrastructure bill (LIVE) | USA Today

 

On Monday, President Joe Biden is set to sign into law a sweeping bipartisan infrastructure package, an integral component of his domestic agenda and the largest investment in the country’s infrastructure in decades.

The bill, priced at $1.2 trillion, will tackle nearly every facet of American infrastructure, including public transportation, roads, bridges, ports, railways, power grids, broadband internet, as well as water and sewage systems.

The package, which includes $550 billion in new spending, is meant to repair and enhance the country’s beleaguered infrastructure, which has languished as investment has slowed. About $650 billion of the funding will be reallocated from already existing projects and funds.
