Enactment of the massive infrastructure package creates funding opportunities as federal agencies prepare to award funds across a large swath of U.S. sectors and industries, including energy, broadband, water, transportation, electric vehicles and cybersecurity. On November 5, 2021, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, a major infrastructure spending bill, which President Biden is expected to sign into law. The package includes $1.2 trillion for roads, bridges, electric vehicles, broadband, cybersecurity, water resilience and drinking water upgrades, and grid resilience, and other infrastructure priorities. Colleagues Nancy A. Fischer, Aimee P. Ghosh, Benjamin J. Cote, Elizabeth Vella Moeller, Craig J. Saperstein, Moushami P. Joshi, and More detailed analyses on specific items in the bill will be available in the coming days and weeks at Pillsbury’s American Infrastructure Investment Resource Center (pillsburylaw.com).
