On November 15, President Biden signed the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), providing $973 billion in federal funding over five years. These funds target transportation, water, power and energy, environmental remediation, public lands, broadband and resilience. The bill also covers related cybersecurity and connectivity enhancements, as well as hardware related to automation, connectivity, and monitoring.
