IIJA/BIL Implementation

IIJA/BIL Signed into Law

On November 15, President Joe Biden signed into public law the bipartisan $1.2 trillion Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) of 2021, following the Senate's passage of the bill on August 10 and the House's passage on November 5. IIJA ensures that roads, highways, and bridges continue to carry people and commerce safely and smoothly for years to come. Increased investment of $110 billion for roads and bridges is included in the bill, bringing the total dedicated spending to $360 billion over five years.

The bill successfully advances several of NAPA’s priorities, as stated in its December 2020 “Build Back Better with Asphalt” package to the incoming Biden administration. The bill also provides an exemption from Buy America, ensuring that U.S.-based pavement material producers can access high-quality asphalt binders and aggregates, safeguarding state-funded projects without supply chain disruptions or unnecessary additional costs to taxpayers.

NAPA thanks members, State Asphalt Pavement Associations, legislators, coalitions, and other partners for supporting this bill. Now, we turn to understanding and implementation over the coming months. This page will be regulary updated as that process ensues.
