Washington, D.C. —This week, U.S. Senators Reverend Raphael Warnock (D-GA) celebrated the one-year anniversary of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Law which has brought significant funds to the Atlanta area. The landmark package is already improving Georgia’s railroads, highways, bike and pedestrian paths, public transportation, airports, ports, and water infrastructure and bringing reliable, affordable, high-speed internet to the state.

“One year ago, I told Georgians that this legislation would strengthen our aging infrastructure and bring jobs to our state,” said Senator Reverend Warnock. “I am glad to see the Atlanta area will benefit from the provisions I secured in this law. These funds will upgrade MARTA’s Five Points downtown station and open up new opportunities for all residents in and around the Atlanta area.  I will continue to work closely with stakeholders on the ground to make sure these federal investments keep flowing to Georgians and our communities quickly so we can keep bringing more jobs to the state.”

A vocal champion for creating good-paying jobs across Georgia and policies that keep Georgia’s businesses and economy competitive, Senator Warnock has long supported efforts to pass the bipartisan infrastructure law, beginning with his work in the U.S. Senate Commerce, Transportation and Science Committee to secure infrastructure investments that will support Georgia jobs and help modernize the state’s infrastructure. The law includes several provisions led and supported by Senator Warnock, including policies and billions of dollars in investments to revitalize Georgia’s infrastructure—covering everything from roads and bridges, to ports and airports, to broadband and water and sewer infrastructure, electric vehicle charging infrastructure to electric school buses, and more.
