Biden, needing a boost, signs $1 trillion infrastructure bill

In need of a political boost, President Joe Biden signed a $1 trillion infrastructure bill on Monday (November 15) at a ceremony that drew Democrats and some Republicans who were instrumental in getting the legislation passed.

The measure is expected to create jobs across the country by dispersing billions of dollars to state and local governments to fix crumbling bridges and roads, and expanding broadband internet access to millions of Americans.

The ceremony, held on the White House South Lawn to accommodate a big crowd, represents an increasingly rare case where members of both parties are willing to stand together and celebrate a bipartisan achievement.
