Video: How Does the Infrastructure Bill Affect Contractors? | The Dirt #42

Updated Nov 8, 2021

In this episode of The Dirt, we give you all the important details of the $1.1 trillion infrastructure bill being debated in Congress and how it affects contractors.

Host Bryan Furnace interviews Daniel Fisher, senior vice president at the Associated Equipment Distributors, to find out what’s in the massive bill – and what’s not. He also walks us through the complicated political process and where things stand with its potential passage.

The bill contains so much more than roads and bridges, affecting most everything that constitutes physical infrastructure, including high-speed internet, power, water, sewer. Fisher also outlines why the bill, which passed the Senate in a bipartisan vote, has run into partisan roadblocks and whether those will be overcome.
