MADISON, Wis. — After four years of failed “infrastructure weeks” pitifully led by Donald Trump and Republicans in Congress, President Biden and Democrats in Congress have delivered an infrastructure deal that will build on Gov. Evers’ commitment to building Wisconsin back better. The Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal will fund millions of infrastructure projects across Wisconsin and has been met with high praise from Wisconsin’s leaders.
