$1.2 trillion infrastructure bill could send billions to Louisiana
8 Nov 2021
Louisiana is expected to receive $7 billion from the Infrastructure Investment & Jobs Act. The money will be used for public transportation, roads, broadband, and water systems.
“Louisiana will get billions from the federal government to repair and update our roads, bridges, sewage and water systems. We would be able to have updated flood protection, increased internet connectivity and so much more,” said Congressman Troy Carter (D).
Carter and Senator Bill Cassidy said almost $500 million dollars will go towards the National Coastal Resilience Fund. This will help reduce flooding for coastal communities in Louisiana’s bayou parishes.
