Infrastructure Bill Includes Multiple Policy Priorities from Congresswoman Nikema Williams

WASHINGTON – Today, Congresswoman Nikema Williams (GA-05) highlighted her policy priorities included in the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. The bill, which the House of Representatives passed on Friday, now heads to President Joe Biden’s desk to be signed into law. 

“I am proud that many of my policy priorities are included in the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, including funding for reconnecting neighborhoods, public transportation expansion, creating more good-paying union jobs, and environmental justice programs,” said Congresswoman Williams. “Now my House colleagues and I are continuing to make progress on passing President Biden’s Build Back Better Agenda.”

“As I’ve always said, I remain committed to passing both the Build Back Better Act and the Infrastructure Investments and Jobs Act to ensure we’re getting President Biden’s agenda delivered for the people. There is still work to be done and I will keep doing everything I can to fight for and deliver for my constituents.”

The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act will provide $1 billion for a new program to reconnect communities divided by interstate highways, based on legislation that Congresswoman Williams introduced and passed in the House. The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act is the single largest federal investment in mass transportation in history, which aligns with Congresswoman Williams’ work to increase transportation equity and justice. The legislation also invests in universal high-speed Internet, the elimination of lead pipes, and the transition to a clean energy economy – all while creating good-paying union jobs.

The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act includes landmark investments that will benefit every family in Georgia. While the funding formulas that will determine the full amount of investment in Georgia have not been released, the state is already guaranteed to receive $13.6 billion for numerous projects
