Federal Infrastructure Bill Significant for Connecticut

Early Saturday morning, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a substantial infrastructure bill. The $1 trillion package is significant for the state of Connecticut, as the Nutmeg state will be receiving an anticipated $5.4 billion. U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal said the legislation dedicates about $4 billion to roads and bridge projects, $1.3 billion for public transit projects, and $30 billion for Amtrak rail improvements in the northeast corridor. The lawmakers said the eventual improvements would shave a half hour off the rail commute from New Haven to New York.
