After years of ongoing debates in Washington, D.C. about the need for comprehensive infrastructure legislation, Congress finally acted by passing a $1.2 trillion bipartisan legislative package, H.R. 3684, the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. President Joseph Biden signed the bill into law this past Monday, November 15.
NEIWPCC would like to thank the Northeast Congressional delegates who supported this critical infrastructure bill. Approximately $550 billion of the total is new funding, of which almost $51 billion is allocated to much needed drinking water, wastewater, and stormwater infrastructure funding.
Thank you again for supporting this critically needed legislation.
Susan J. Sullivan, NEIWPCC executive director
