AISC, NSBA applaud passage of the bipartisan infrastructure bill

November 10, 2021 -The American Institute of Steel Construction and the National Steel Bridge Alliance commend the U.S. Congress for passing the $1.2 trillion, bipartisan Infrastructure Investment & Jobs Act, which is expected to boost infrastructure investment by nearly 40 percent.

The Act, which President Joe Biden will likely sign into law soon, will enable much-needed and long-overdue investment in our nation's critical infrastructure, including highway structures, bridges, and public transit structures. It will strengthen our economy and create good-paying jobs by using domestic fabricated structural steel to meet the demand of the future, explained Max Puchtel, AISC's director of government relations and sustainability.

"This is a collective victory," says Puchtel. "The tireless advocacy work of our members, allied steel associations and construction coalitions, and the greater steel community has finally paid off."

The Act also contains strong Buy America provisions which will keep our public dollars invested here at home. Construction materials must be produced in the United States, and any general waivers to the program continue to require review.
