Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act

Addressing our nation’s complex infrastructure needs requires a complex bill.

    


The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) – aka Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) was signed into law on November 15, 2021. IIJA is an unprecedented spending bill with a focus on value, social equity, climate resilience and sustainability. Driving this kind of change and meeting America’s infrastructure challenges requires IIJA to have more breadth and complexity than typical federal infrastructure bills.
