Biden Signs $1T Infrastructure Funding Package

President Joe Biden signed his hard-fought $1 trillion infrastructure deal into law Monday (Tuesday, Nov. 16, 2021, in Manila) before a bipartisan, celebratory crowd on the White House lawn, declaring that the new infusion of cash for roads, bridges, ports and more is going to make life “change for the better” for the American people.

But prospects are tougher for further bipartisanship ahead of the 2022 midterm elections as Biden pivots back to more difficult negotiations over his broader $1.85 trillion social spending package, Josh Boak and Colleen Long reported for the Associated Press (AP).


The president hopes to use the infrastructure law to build back his popularity, which has taken a hit amid rising inflation and the inability to fully shake the public health and economic risks from COVID-19.



"My message to the American people is this: America is moving again and your life is going to change for the better,” he said.


With the bipartisan deal, the president had to choose between his promise of fostering national unity and a commitment to transformative change. The final measure whittled down much of his initial vision for infrastructure.

Yet, the administration hopes to sell the new law as a success that bridged partisan divides and will elevate the country with clean drinking water, high-speed internet, and a shift away from fossil fuels.


“Folks, too often in Washington, the reason we didn’t get things done is because we insisted on getting everything we want. Everything,” Biden said.

“With this law, we focused on getting things done. I ran for president because the only way to move our country forward in my view was through compromise and consensus.”
