Infrastructure Issue ImageCongresswoman Hayes was active in the negotiations of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, and has consistently championed investments in public school infrastructure, which lead to nearly $550 billion in funds eligible for school infrastructure improvements in COVID-19 response packages. Connecticut received $3.5 billion for federal highway programs, $561 million for bridge replacement, $1.3 billion for public transportation, $53 million for electric vehicle chargers and infrastructure, $100 million to improve broadband coverage, $445 million for water infrastructure and $62 million for airports through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Plan.
