Creating a Strategy for Infrastructure Advocacy

The $2 trillion Biden administration infrastructure plan, the American Jobs Plan, touches the largest parts of the US economy in significant ways. It seeks to modernize transportation infrastructure (roads, bridges, airports, public transit), stimulate the advancement of electric vehicles, shore up the nation’s electric grid, expand broadband internet access, and improve drinking water infrastructure. It also calls for a $580 billion investment in job training, manufacturing development, and research and development. An increase in the corporate tax rate to 28 percent is one of the main funding sources for the plan.
