Illinois Chamber Responds to the Signing of Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act
 
The Illinois Chamber applauds the passage and signing into law of H.R. 3684, Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. This bipartisan legislation fulfills a generational pursuit for adequate investment in Illinois’ vital and physical infrastructure by strengthening the work done in the state’s 2019 capital bill. In addition to the traditional Illinois priorities of roads, bridges, and transit, our residents and businesses benefit from investment in underinvested infrastructure such as waterways, rail, and cybersecurity.
 
The passage of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act will ensure Illinois will receive nearly $17 billion in must needed funding. In addition, there’s billions more in competitive grant programs for which the state can apply.
