What the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law means for Illinois
The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (also known as The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act) is the largest long-term investment in our infrastructure in a century, and it’s a big deal for Illinois.
When you hear the word infrastructure, you probably think about roads and bridges. But this landmark legislation covers a lot more than that. It includes resources to ensure that our state is ready to take advantage of clean energy like solar and wind, providing reliable, affordable clean energy, even in extreme weather.
It’s also about to get a lot easier to drive an electric vehicle in Illinois. The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law includes resources to build thousands of new electric vehicle chargers across the state, ensuring that everyone who wants to drive an electric vehicle can. Combine that with billions of dollars to improve public transportation like buses and trains, and it’s easy to see how the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law will reduce pollution, improve air quality, and create good-paying jobs right here in Illinois.
And last but not least, the law provides Illinois with more than a billion dollars to clean up hundreds of abandoned coal mines and polluted sites. That means safer communities, less pollution, and new jobs in parts of Illinois that have been overlooked for far too long.
