Omnibus Appropriations Act Covers Transportation Under Funding Umbrella

Signing the $1.5 trillion 2022 omnibus spending bill into law in mid-March, President Joe Biden released the full benefits of last fall’s bipartisan infrastructure and jobs act. Praised by the transportation construction industry for its broad infusion into the U.S. economy for years to come, IIJA couldn’t become reality until the omnibus bill was signed. H.R. 2471, the “Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2022” provides full-year funding through Sept. 30, 2022, for projects and activities of the federal government. The Act provides funding for U.S. government operations through September 2022. The FY 2022 funding bill passed the House and Senate before arriving at the president’s desk. Meanwhile, the House also passed a short-term spending measure as a Plan B in case a continuing resolution, funding the government, expired March 11.
