NewDEAL Applauds Success of Bipartisan Infrastructure Law on Anniversary

President Biden signed the law one year ago today

Washington D.C. (November 15, 2022) – NewDEAL released the following statement from CEO Debbie Cox Bultan marking the one year anniversary of the signing of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, recognizing its impact on state and local government priorities:

“Today, the NewDEAL celebrates one year since President Biden signed the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. We commend the Administration and Congressional leaders for working across the aisle to deliver these historic investments and for partnering so effectively with state and local officials to implement the funding responsibly and effectively, with a focus on creating equitable economic growth and opportunity.

“The law marked a huge victory for state and local leaders, providing targeted support for initiatives that NewDEAL Leaders have long prioritized to ensure their communities can thrive in the modern economy and are more resilient to the impacts of climate change. Over the past year, we have seen significant progress across the country on efforts like: connecting more families to high-speed internet through initiatives around infrastructure and affordability, making investments in cleaner transportation like green buses and electric vehicle infrastructure; and removing and replacing lead pipes to ensure access to clean water. Critically, related investments in workforce development also create good-paying jobs.

“The $185 billion in funding for over 6,900 different projects so far is improving the quality of life in every part of the country. As we reach the one-year milestone, NewDEAL Leaders recommit to a strong federal-state-local partnership that will maximize the impact of the infrastructure law.
