WASHINGTON (Gray DC) – Governors across the country were back in Washington DC for the 114th annual winter meeting of the National Governors Association.
The group of governors touched on topics ranging from disaster preparedness and economic recovery to education.
Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers (D-Wis.) Said he is heading into roads, bridges and broadband.
The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, passed last November, is expected to bring hundreds of millions of dollars to the state.
“It’s going to change the way Wisconsin looks, and across the country, to repair the infrastructure and build it in a way that is sustainable and reliable,” Evers said.
Wisconsin can compete for more funding, available through grants, for projects such as bridge investments and charging of electric vehicles.
In Washington, the governors shared ideas and heard from government officials about how to compete for and best utilize the extra dollars.
“We need to talk about the important pieces we need to perform to meet the objectives of the bill,” Evers said.
President Joe Biden is set to host the governors of the White House on Monday for further discussions.
