    • Download Executive Summary

    On November 15, 2021, President Biden enacted the five-year, $973 billion Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL), formally known as the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (P.L. 117-58). Following the end of the federal legislature’s responsibilities to develop and pass the legislation comes the role of covered federal agencies to implement the law at the federal, state and local levels.

    As intergovernmental partners, counties play a key role in ensuring the successful interpretation and implementation of the BIL. Extremely significant to counties, who own and operate a vast amount of the nations’ infrastructure, effective implementation of the BIL will require meaningful and ongoing engagement between officials at all levels of government.
