The U.S. House of Representatives today passed the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), one piece of the president’s agenda to build back better that includes investments to repair and modernize America’s surface transportation systems and funding to reclaim abandoned mine lands. Following the passage of the bill, the BlueGreen Alliance released a statement from Executive Director Jason Walsh.
“Passage of the IIJA is a step forward. But our message to Congress is simple: your job is not done. Pass the Build Back Better Act immediately to make the investments we need to have a clean, prosperous, and equitable economy.”
