President Biden today signed the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) into law, one piece of the president’s agenda to build back better, which includes investments to repair and modernize America’s surface transportation systems and funding to reclaim abandoned mine lands.
Following the signing of the bill, the BlueGreen Alliance released a statement from Executive Director Jason Walsh:
“The infrastructure bill is a step forward to build a strong, prosperous, and equitable economy. We cannot afford to wait any longer for the full build back better agenda. The House needs to pass the Build Back Better Act this week and the Senate needs to finish the job and send it to President Biden’s desk to deliver for America’s workers, communities, and the environment.”
