NHDP Statement on the Anniversary of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law
CONCORD, NH — Today is the one-year anniversary of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill being signed into law by President Biden. The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law is modernizing our nation by rebuilding roads and bridges, replacing lead pipes and delivering clean water, expanding access to affordable high-speed internet, and making our country more competitive in the 21st century – all while creating good-paying union jobs.
The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law has provided the funds for unprecedented investments in Granite State infrastructure, with:
$552 million going towards improving New Hampshire roads, bridges, and other key infrastructure.
$72.6 million going towards providing clean and safe water across the state and improving water infrastructure.
$100 million going towards providing affordable high-speed internet coverage across the state.
$25 million going towards clean energy, energy efficiency, and power
$6.2 million in 2022 and 2023 to build out a network of electric vehicle chargers across the state.
In response, NHDP Chair Ray Buckley released the following statement:
“While Donald Trump and his Republican Congress talked a big game about an infrastructure week that they ultimately failed to deliver, President Biden and Democrats delivered an infrastructure decade. Thanks to the hard work of President Biden, Senator Jeanne Shaheen, Senator Maggie Hassan, Congresswoman Annie Kuster, and Congressman Chris Pappas, New Hampshire has received millions upon millions of dollars to improve our infrastructure, high-speed internet, and our clean energy options. In one year alone, the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law has made investments that have benefited every single Granite Stater. We can’t wait to see the improvements that come in the years to follow thanks to President Biden and our Democrats in Washington who secured these funds for New Hampshire.”
