Democratic Party of Georgia Statement on Senate Passage of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill

August 10, 2021

Today, as Georgia’s two Democratic U.S. Senators helped President Biden pass the Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal — the largest long-term investment in America’s infrastructure and global competitiveness in nearly a century — through the Senate, Executive Director of the Democratic Party of Georgia Scott Hogan released the following statement:

“Georgians sent President Biden to the White House to bring people together and deliver historic progress for our state, and today’s passage of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal shows that he is delivering on his promise. The Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill devotes billions of dollars to repairing and upgrading Georgia’s core infrastructure — including roads and bridges, ports and waterways, railroads, the electrical grid, broadband, and more — while creating millions of good-paying American jobs, helping our businesses compete in the global economy, and not costing a single dime to Georgia families making under $400,000 a year. These are once-in-a-generation investments for Georgia families, workers, and communities.”

President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill makes critical investments in:


  • Based on formula funding alone, Georgia would expect to receive $8.9 billion for federal-aid highway apportioned programs and $225 million for bridge replacement and repairs under the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act over five years.
  • Georgia can also compete for the $12.5 billion Bridge Investment Program for economically significant bridges and nearly $16 billion of national funding in the bill dedicated for major projects that will deliver substantial economic benefits to communities.


  • Based on formula funding alone, Georgia would expect to receive $1.4 billion over five years under the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act to improve public transportation options across the state.


  • Under the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, Georgia will receive a minimum allocation of $100 million to help provide broadband coverage across the state, including providing access to the at least 649,000 Georgians who currently lack it. 
  • 187,000 or 31% of people in Georgia will be eligible for the Affordability Connectivity Benefit, which will help low-income families afford internet access.


  • Under the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, Georgia would expect to receive $135 million over five years to support the expansion of an EV charging network in the state.
  • Georgia will also have the opportunity to apply for the $2.5 billion in grant funding dedicated to EV charging in the bill.
