This Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal will rebuild America’s roads, bridges and rails, expand access to clean drinking water, ensure every American has access to high-speed internet, tackle the climate crisis, advance environmental justice, and invest in communities that have too often been left behind. The legislation will help ease inflationary pressures and strengthen supply chains by making long overdue improvements for our nation’s ports, airports, rail, and roads. It will drive the creation of good-paying union jobs and grow the economy sustainably and equitably so that everyone gets ahead for decades to come. Combined with the President’s Build Back Framework, it will add on average 1.5 million jobs per year for the next 10 years." https://www.whitehouse.gov/briefing-room/statements-releases/2021/11/06/fact-sheet-the-bipartisan-infrastructure-deal/ #Broadband #road #airports #rails #Cleandrinkingwater #jobs State Farm Walmart Comcast NBCUniversal Phillips 66 Gas Southwest Airlines Natreve Wellness AT&T AARP #TheHonestkitchen MiiR Asian/Pacific Islander American Chamber of Commerce & Entrepreneurship OCA-Asian Pacific American Advocates
