President Joe Biden calls the new infrastructure bill “a monumental step forward” for the country. “It is a once-in-a-generation investment that is going to take millions of jobs to modernize our infrastructure and turn our climate crisis into an opportunity,” said Biden. Senator Kevin Cramer said passing this infrastructure package was the right thing to do for North Dakota and for the country. “We must confront the inflation and supply chain problems facing every American and this is the first piece of legislation that really does that.” This bill includes over $413 billion for roads and bridges; $65 billion for broadband; $42 billion for cybersecurity and the mitigation of drought and floods; and $16 billion for ports and waterways.
