On the heels of the Infrastructure Bill, the White House is ramping up efforts to tout the $1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill and the effort to refurbish roads, bridges, and airports and reduce emissions. Today Nancy Pelosi was in Georgia with Georgia Congresswoman Nikema Williams. U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg is on a four-day, six-state tour starting Tuesday, visiting Florida, Oklahoma, Minnesota, Ohio, Nevada, and New Hampshire to talk up the infrastructure law. The administration has funded more than 5,000 projects to date and released around $113 billion. The administration will award billions of dollars in additional grants through the end of 2022, including for electric vehicle charging stations. On Wednesday, the Commerce Department said all 50 states submitted applications for initial planning awards under the $42.45 billion fund to extend broadband internet to unserved areas. This visit to the south comes days after a city and surrounding area without drinking water in Jackson, Mississippi.
