PHOENIX — President Joe Biden is set to sign a $1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill Monday that will allocate plenty of money to Arizona.
The bill provides funds to rebuild roads and bridges, and also to shore up coastlines against climate change, protect public utility systems from cyberattacks and modernize the electric grid. Public transit, airports and freight rail also get boosts.
The Senate passed the bill, which Sen. Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona helped negotiate, in August. The House approved it on Nov. 5. The plan garnered support from both parties in both chambers.
“While bringing both parties together can seem impossible these days, Arizonans elected me to do the hard work,” Sinema said in a statement after the details of the plan were hammered out in July.
