Overview of the bill
The $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure asset bill has passed in the US Senate, with $550 billion of funds being allocated to America’s infrastructure. If the bill is passed in the US House, cities across the country will begin to undergo a massive expansion. The plan details new job creation and sustainable solutions nationwide for different towns and their citizens. Over the next decade, it says it will create many jobs in the public sector. Yet, some Americans are still left puzzled. Who will reap the benefits of this bill? What will be affected? Will a small county be able to reap these benefits just as a larger county would? This blog post will answer those questions & more!
So, who or what will be receiving funds?
This bill is an excellent opportunity for larger cities and their public works departments to upgrade their infrastructure. The infrastructure bill goes into detail about large-scale development within public transit, passenger rail, bridges, wastewater, water treatment, energy, and even widespread internet availability. Various towns and cities will be connected and the construction of new paths to new places will start. The avenues will be prepared, but how will the town halls, courthouses, and schools fare?
Small county gains & losses
All infrastructure faces neglect either one way or another. City officials everywhere have to decide where to allocate resources or if they have enough resources to upgrade failing infrastructure. Smaller jurisdictions have even less to operate with. Additionally, they are less resilient to the damages inflicted upon their assets. Therefore, consultations for repairs on dilapidated assets tend to be very expensive and outside the usual budget. As a result, assets waste away as time goes by. So, eliminating the difficulties of these processes will offer new opportunities for improvement to small county residents.
