Congress passed a massive infrastructure package last week that includes provisions that have implications for our state and campus. At the DOE, a $73B infusion includes funding for several energy infrastructure and clean energy demonstration projects, as well as four clean hydrogen hubs. Transportation-related topics are front and center in the new bill, and Congress has directed additional funds to University Transportation Centers while establishing a new Rail R&D Center of Excellence and multiple Transportation Resilience and Adaptation Centers of Excellence. The legislation also provides $157M for cybersecurity research. The APLU and the AIP have both published additional analysis of the bill.
