Trone Announces that the Bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act Becomes Law

Trone Voted for the Historic Investment to Rebuild America’s Crumbling Infrastructure Earlier this Month

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, Congressman David Trone announced that the Bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act was signed into law by President Biden. This transformative investment provides $550 billion to rebuild America’s roads, bridges, public transit, climate resiliency measures, and broadband deployment. The historic legislation will create 1.5 million good-paying, union jobs every year over the next decade.

“Today we are not only celebrating the rebuilding of our nation’s infrastructure, but also bipartisanship,” said Congressman Trone. “We can still work together, across the aisle, to get things done. Our country isn’t broken and we proved that here today. Thanks to President Biden’s leadership we passed a law that will improve transportation, combat climate change, and create good jobs. That’s a huge win for everyone!” 

Earlier this year, Trone introduced the Finish the ADHS Act to complete the Appalachian Development Highway System (ADHS). The project is part of a system of highways that connect the Appalachian region to national interstates in order to foster economic growth. The Bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act includes a framework from the Trone-led bill which will provide nearly $70 million in federal funding to complete Maryland’s portion of the ADHS. Thanks to Trone, Maryland can use this funding to complete essential transportation projects like route 219.

Congressman David Trone was elected to the House of Representatives in November 2018 to serve the 6th District of Maryland, which includes all or part of Montgomery, Frederick, Washington, Allegany, and Garrett Counties. Trone serves on the Appropriations, Veterans’ Affairs, and Joint Economic Committees in the 117th Congress and previously served on the Education and Labor and Foreign Affairs Committees. In Congress, Trone is fighting to make progress on issues that matter to Marylanders, including the mental health and addiction crises, criminal justice reform, and funding for medical research.
