State Officials Breaking Down The Seventeen Billion Dollars Coming To Illinois Courtesy Of A Federal Infrastructure Bill

A large portion of the trillion-dollar federal infrastructure bill, signed by President Joe Biden late last week, is heading to Illinois. Seventeen billion dollars, to be exact. More than nine billion dollars of that is going to roads and bridges, as the state will then be eligible for billions more in competitive grant programs. Additionally, about 100 million dollars will go toward the expansion of broadband internet service to residents across Illinois.
