Joining Hickenlooper to celebrate what the bill means for Coloradans will be the Southwest Carpenters, Denver Pipefitters Local 208, the Blue Green Alliance, the Environmental Defense Fund, and Conservation Colorado.
Hickenlooper was part of the bipartisan “Group of 22” senators who negotiated and wrote the $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill, which will expand broadband access, jumpstart our transition to clean energy and electric vehicles, make roads and bridges more resilient to climate change, and safeguard access to clean water. This bill represents the largest public investment in climate change mitigation and American infrastructure in a century. Colorado stands to gain billions from this bill, all while creating thousands of jobs across the country.
