Higgins Announces Nation Building Here at Home Act
Congressman Brian Higgins (NY-26) kicked off Infrastructure Week 2017 by announcing the Nation Building Here At Home Act, a bill introduced by Higgins to address America’s crumbling infrastructure needs while putting people to work.  The legislation creates a new U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) grant program to rebuild our nation’s roads, bridges, transit systems, water infrastructure, waterways, ports and airports. “The failure to tackle the critical needs of this country’s infrastructure is a national disgrace,” said Higgins.  “With each passing day we experience lost productivity and lost opportunity. America’s infrastructure needs must be met with urgency.” The Nation Building Here At Home Act would invest $1.263 trillion in funding for projects over the next 5 years.  The allocation represents the difference between the projected level of U.S. infrastructure investment and what the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) says is needed to meet U.S.
