CFB NEWS: Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill Passes

The Senate passed a bipartisan infrastructure bill Tuesday that would provide $550 million in new funding to repair America’s rural roads, ports and waterways, while dramatically increasing high-speed internet access.  Colorado is expected to receive $3.7 billion for roads, $225 million for bridge replacement and repairs, at least $100 million to expand broadband coverage, $917 million for public transit, and $57 million to expand electric vehicle charging. While we are not always the most supportive of massive increases to the spending of tax dollars, it sure lessens the sting when some of that money is coming back home to benefit Colorado.
