Created LIUNA Jobs with Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, Inflation Reduction Act, and CHIPS
The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law of 2021 is a historic investment of more than $1.2 trillion that is already creating opportunities for LIUNA members by making the largest infrastructure investment in a century, creating a generation of good-paying union jobs, and boosting economic growth. The investment package includes $650 billion in transportation reauthorization investment AND $550 billion in new federal investment in infrastructure over the next decade.
The CHIPS and Science Act of 2022 (CHIPS) makes a historic federal investment in our nation’s advanced manufacturing and research facility capabilities.
The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 (IRA) provides nearly $400 billion in federal funding to energy infrastructure; delivered through a mix of tax incentives, grants, and loan guarantees. Tax credits will boost incentives for renewable energy; including solar, wind, clean hydrogen, carbon capture, geothermal, and hydropower energy projects.
