"The passage of this bipartisan legislation represents a critical step towards addressing the current and future impacts of climate change by bolstering community resilience," NRPA Vice President of Public Policy and Advocacy, Elvis Cordova stated, "We are thrilled that Congress passed this important legislation and will continue to partner with legislators and communities to ensure the successful implementation of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act."
