Thanks to the Biden-Harris Administration's execution of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, Alaska is witnessing a transformative era. A whopping $6.4 billion is flowing into the state, funding over 1,042 essential projects. This includes a significant $1 billion aimed at connecting every Alaskan to high-speed internet, a vital resource for working families and businesses. See more here.
On the infrastructure front, approximately $3.4 billion is being invested in enhancing transportation - roads, bridges, public transit, and more, crucial for daily life and work. Additionally, about $386 million is dedicated to improving clean water and water infrastructure, ensuring a healthier environment for all Alaskans.
