    NACo Legislative Analysis: H.R. 3684, the Investing in a New Vision for the Environment and Surface Transportation (INVEST) in America Act

    On July 1, the full U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 3684, the Investing in a New Vision for our Environment and Surface Transportation (INVEST) in America Act. The bill, led by U.S. House Transportation and Infrastructure Chairman Peter DeFazio (D-Ore.), would provide $715 billion over five years from FY 2022 through FY 2026 for a surface transportation reauthorization, as well as drinking and wastewater provisions. The INVEST Act includes $592 billion in transportation authorizations for highway, road, bridge, transit, rail, climate and safety programs, as well as $36 billion for the deployment of electric vehicles. The bill’s path forward is complicated, however, in light of the Senate’s recent bipartisan infrastructure agreement that contains more conservative transportation and water provisions.
