On Tuesday September 14, 2021 the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee passed by a vote of 37-29 its portion of the $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation bill that is now being referred to as the Build Back Better Act.
This piece of legislation proposes investing an additional $60 billion for infrastructure projects that address climate change, sustainability, and equity. See below for some sections that may be of interest to LA County.
In the next two weeks Congress must:
- Lift the debt ceiling
- Pass a continuing resolution that continues to fund the government through the end of the year
- Pass the Bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act
- Pass the Build Back Better Act
Getting all of this done will be a heavy lift. Infrastructure LA will continue to monitor and update you on any developments.
