The $1.2 trillion Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework

Recommended Posts

The $1.2 trillion Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework is a critical step in implementing President Biden’s Build Back Better vision. The Plan makes transformational and historic investments in clean transportation infrastructure, clean water infrastructure, universal broadband infrastructure, clean power infrastructure, remediation of legacy pollution, and resilience to the changing climate. Cumulatively across these areas, the Framework invests two-thirds of the resources that the President proposed in his American Jobs Plan.

President Biden believes that we must invest in our country and in our people, creating good-paying union jobs, tackling the climate crisis, and growing the economy sustainably, and equitably for decades to come. The Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework is a critical step in accomplishing these objectives.

President Biden believes that we are at inflection point between democracy and autocracy. At this moment in our history, President Biden believes we must demonstrate to the world that American democracy can deliver for the American people. Today, the President is showing that democracy can deliver results. The Framework will position American workers, farmers, and businesses – small and large alike – to compete and win in the 21st century.

Still, there is more work to do – to grow our economy, create jobs, improve living standards, reduce climate pollution, and ensure more Americans can participate fully and equally in our economy. President Biden remains committed to the comprehensive agenda laid out in the American Jobs Plan and American Families Plan. He will work with Congress to build on the Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework in legislation that moves in tandem, and he is encouraged that both the House and Senate are working on budget plans that would do so.

But democracy requires compromise. The historic Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework will make life better for millions of Americans, create a generation of good-paying union jobs and economic growth, and position the United States to win the 21st century, including on many of the key technologies needed to combat the climate crisis. That’s what President Biden and Vice President Harris were elected to do.

The President calls on Congress to pass the Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework and send it to his desk, and pass a budget resolution and legislation that makes his full Build Back Better vision a reality.

The Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework will:

Improve healthy, sustainable transportation options for millions of Americans by modernizing and expanding transit and rail networks across the country, while reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The Plan is the largest federal investment in public transit in history and is the largest federal investment in passenger rail since the creation of Amtrak.
 
Repair and rebuild our roads and bridges with a focus on climate change mitigation, resilience, equity, and safety for all users, including cyclists and pedestrians. The Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework is the single largest dedicated bridge investment since the construction of the interstate highway system.
 
Build a national network of electric vehicle (EV) chargers along highways and in rural and disadvantaged communities. The largest investment in EV infrastructure in history, the Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework will accomplish the President’s goal of building 500,000 EV chargers.
 
Electrify thousands of school and transit buses across the country to reduce harmful emissions and drive domestic manufacturing of zero emission vehicles and components.
 
Eliminate the nation’s lead service lines and pipes, delivering clean drinking water to up to ten million American families and more than 400,000 schools and child care facilities that currently don’t have it, including in Tribal nations and disadvantaged communities. The Plan is the largest investment in clean drinking water and waste water infrastructure in American history.
 
Connect every American to reliable high-speed internet, just as the federal government made a historic effort to provide electricity to every American nearly one hundred years ago. The Framework will also drive down prices for internet service and close the digital divide.
 
Upgrade our power infrastructure, including by building thousands of miles of new, resilient transmission lines to facilitate the expansion of renewable energy, including through a new Grid Authority. The Plan is the single largest investment in clean energy transmission in American history.
 
Create a first of its kind Infrastructure Financing Authority that will leverage billions of dollars into clean transportation and clean energy.
 
Make the largest investment in addressing legacy pollution in American history, a cleanup effort that will create good-paying union jobs and advance environmental justice.
 
Prepare more of our infrastructure for the impacts of climate change, cyber attacks, and extreme weather events. The Framework is the largest investment in the resilience of physical and natural systems in American history.
The Framework, which will generate significant economic benefits and returns, is financed through a combination of closing the tax gap, redirecting unspent emergency relief funds, targeted corporate user fees, and the macroeconomic impact of infrastructure investment.

why should anyone trust this incompetent to build anything after revealing his astounding incompetence in Afghanistan?

some poor souls still there are wondering when he is going to get them out and back to the united states...better.

:P:lol:

Well Donald Trump set up the Afghanistan pull-out.  AND he had dozens of Infrastructure Weeks, and got nothing done there.  But I guess you prefer someone who wil let our bridges collapse, power grids downed with every storm, drinking water poison our citizens, etc.  I.e. the Failed Trump Presidency.

Hope you understand it's only a small fraction it will take to revamp our highways, bridges and other physical infrastructure.

Our power grids needs more than the usual upgrading but needs to be harden and protected from possible hacking.

Not a matter of if but WHEN...we dodged 2 bullets since October 2003.

It's a 1.2 Trillion dollar  price but the totals are only $579 billion .Their not telling you where 1/2 the money is going. They don't want the public to know. That's the Communist part that the G.O.P. is talking about.

I think we should get another contractor. Labor cost is to high. 1.2 T when the total is only $579 Billion. Is this Mr. Blanding Builds His Dream House?

knowledgeable people have known for decades that you simply cannot run an industrialized nation like ours on only solar panels and wind turbines.

that is science too! it is also a fact that wind turbines require oil-based lubricants in order to turn. 

first the left hated on oil then they threw in coal and even natural gas. I grew up in a house with a natural gas furnace in our utility room which provided heat.

they hate fossil fuel so much they wanna destroy our fossil fuel infrastructure NOW even though there is at present no practical alternative energy source to replace it with.

WE MUST stick it out with oil, coal and natural gas until there is. that is both fact and science.

:)

Notice the two geniuses still haven't admitted they didn't add the numbers...... and one just tries to lamely divert once again.

First off Nip didn't talk about the numbers I did (projection) What is transportation if it's not Public transit    $49
Passenger and Freight Rail    $66Electric buses / transit    $7.5Airports    $25Ports & Waterways    $1. Transportation is $312 Billion  separate from all  the stuff I mentioned. Planes,trains and automobile. It said the total was $579 Billion. I admit I didn't add the numbers up. The way Biden lies I should've know better. What's left for Transportation if all that stuff is separate?

The way Biden lies means that he has probably lied as much in his whole lifetime as Habitual Pathological Liar Donald Trump lies in any given week of his life.

But that still doesn't explain the $312 Billion  for transportation (if all the stuff is separate)

Don't know why link doesn't work but Trump releases statement trashing McConnell for not passing infrastructure while he was president. But it was Trump who walked away from a $2 trillion deal in 2019.Trump releases statement trashing McConnell for not passing infrastructure while he was president.

Here is a more detailed breakdown.

 

Everything In The $1 Trillion Infrastructure Bill: New Roads, Electric School Buses, Great Lakes Restoration And More
Jonathan Ponciano

TOPLINE The House passed one of the largest infrastructure packages in U.S. history Friday night after months of bipartisan negotiations and tense political infighting, shoring up $1.2 trillion in funds, including $550 billion in new investments, for the nation's bridges, airports, waterways, public transit and more—here’s everything you need to know about where the massive spending will go. 
U.S. Capitol In Washington
The newly passed measure includes $110 billion for roads and bridges, $65 billion to equip all ... 
Roads and bridges: Headlining the 2,702-page bill’s spending, roughly $110 billion of new funds would go toward improving the nation's roads and bridges, and investments in other major transportation programs.

Public transit: The package also includes the largest-ever federal investment in public transit, allotting $39 billion to modernize systems, improve access for the elderly and people with disabilities, and repair more than 24,000 buses, 5,000 railcars and thousands of miles of train tracks.

PROMOTED


Amtrak: The legislation marks the largest investment in passenger rail since the creation of Amtrak 50 years ago, with $66 billion earmarked for high-speed rail, safety improvements, Amtrak grants and modernization of the rail route connecting Washington, D.C., to Boston.

Broadband internet: Tacking on to billions authorized by last year’s American Rescue Plan, the infrastructure bill includes $65 billion to bolster the country's broadband infrastructure and help ensure that every American has access to high-speed internet, with one in four households expected to be eligible for a $30-per-month subsidy to pay for internet access.

Electric grid: Though many clean-energy measures were cut from the bill to satisfy spending-weary lawmakers, a $65 billion investment will help upgrade the nation’s electricity grid, with thousands of miles of new transmission lines and funds for environmentally friendly smart-grid technology.


Electric cars, buses and ferries: In addition to $7.5 billion for the nation’s first network of electric-vehicle chargers along highway corridors, lawmakers have shored up $5 billion for zero-emission buses (including thousands of electric school buses) and $2.5 billion for ferries.

Clean drinking water: Following high-profile water-supply crises plaguing cities like Flint, Michigan, the legislation includes a provision for $55 billion to replace all the nation's lead pipes and service lines, representing the largest investment in clean drinking water ever.

Great rivers and lakes: Among the bill's $48 billion for water infrastructure improvements, about $1 billion is slated to go toward the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, a sweeping clean-up measure targeting toxic hot spots—or areas of heavy industrial pollution—around the Great Lakes region.

Airports: More than $25 billion has been allocated to help modernize America's airports—funds the Airports Council International says will help tackle more than $115 billion worth of project backlogs.

Road safety: The deal invests $11 billion in transportation safety programs, including a new program to help states and localities reduce crashes and fatalities in their communities, particularly among cyclists and pedestrians.

NEWS PEG
House lawmakers passed the Bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act Friday evening in a vote of 226 to 208, sending it to President Joe Biden’s desk for signing nearly two months after the Senate first approved the bill.

KEY BACKGROUND
Though President Joe Biden first released his infrastructure proposal in March, Democratic Party leaders faced opposition to the bill’s passage from both sides of the aisle. For months, Senate Democrats eager to bolster clean-energy funding hashed it out with Republicans queasy over heightened spending, until finally agreeing on cost cuts of about $800 billion in June. But House progressives then threatened to withhold support for the bill if the Senate didn't also move forward with Biden’s separate Build Back Better budget proposal, which would authorize spending for Democratic priorities that didn’t make it into the infrastructure package. The budget aims to use the Senate’s special reconciliation process to sidestep Republican support and pass with just 51 votes instead of the usual 60. That would require a tie-breaking vote from Vice President Kamala Harris and support from all 50 Senate Democrats, including moderates like Sens. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.), both of whom balked at the originally proposed price tag of $3.5 trillion. Thus far, weeks of negotiations have yielded a less costly $1.8 trillion proposal.

BIG NUMBER
$256 billion. That’s how much the Congressional Budget Office estimates the infrastructure bill could add to the nation’s budget deficit over the next ten years (at a less alarming $25.6 billion a year), meaning nearly half of the package’s proposed new spending could end up tacked on to the nation’s $29 trillion debt load.
