Sharing is Caring!

Jan. 19 (UPI) — The White House said Wednesday it will invest more than $14 billion this fiscal year from the recently passed infrastructure law in more than 500 projects, the largest of which is a plan to restore Florida’s Everglades.

In addition to the Everglades, the projects include expanding the capacity of large ports in locations such as Long Beach, Calif., and fixing aging waterway infrastructure in Louisiana, Pennsylvania and Michigan.

“These key projects will strengthen the nation’s supply chain, provide significant new economic opportunities nationwide, and bolster our defenses against climate change,” the White House said.
