White House launches website tracking infrastructure projects nationwide
According to the Associated Press, the White House is launching a website today to map and track tens of thousands of infrastructure projects and private manufacturing investments, an effort by the administration to show the impact of its policies on the U.S. economy.
Following $1.9 trillion in pandemic relief, President Biden signed a $1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill into law. He also secured more than $250 billion to invest in computer chip production and scientific research, and created new tax incentives for renewable energy sources that are worth hundreds of billions of dollars.
The new website documents roughly 32,000 infrastructure projects and more than $470 billion worth of investments in the production of electric vehicles, batteries, computer chips, biotech, clean energy, and other sectors.
Users on the site can look at a national map or scroll through projects by state. The site documents private investments of more than $100 million that the administration said its policies helped to spur. It also provides additional economic data and details at the state level.
