Resources: The INVEST in America Act

June 15, 2021

The INVEST in America Act is comprehensive surface transportation legislation that would modernize our roads, bridges, transit, rail and so much more. The transformational bill would move our country away from the status quo and would lay the groundwork for an infrastructure package for the modern era.

Modern infrastructure means creating millions of good-paying jobs that rebuild the middle class and make our country more competitive in the global economy, combating the climate crisis by cutting carbon pollution from the transportation sector, and addressing long-standing inequities in communities around the country with investments that make cities and towns safer and more connected. We can do this. In fact, we can’t afford NOT to!
