Biden’s Infrastructure Bill Passed. Here’s What it Means for Wisconsin.

Measure expected to provide around $5.5 billion in transportation projects to Wisconsin and more in a variety of other job-creating improvements.

Leaders from across Wisconsin—from mayors in all regions of the state to agriculture and transportation boosters—are applauding final congressional passage of President Joe Biden’s bipartisan infrastructure bill. 

Backed by the Senate in August and approved by the House of Representatives late Friday in a 228-206 vote, the legislation will provide an estimated $5.5 billion in federal funding over five years to a wide assortment of transportation projects around Wisconsin, helping to shore up roads and bridges while additional funds will go toward job creation and improvements in mass transit, stormwater control, lead pipe and PFAS abatement, and broadband expansion. 

The White House estimates the various investments funded by the bill will sustain 2 million jobs per year across the country over the next decade.
