Legislature’s investment in water and sewer projects already paying dividends for Alabama communities

Aug 16, 2022

When Governor Kay Ivey called the Alabama Legislature into special session in January of this year, the task was clear: Allocate hundreds of millions of dollars from the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) to benefit Alabamians through game-changing investments in broadband, health care, and water and sewer infrastructure.

The Legislature responded decisively to Governor Ivey, authorizing $772 million in spending that will aid communities in every corner of the state – putting dollars to work where they are most needed. Generations of Alabama citizens will benefit from the foundations we are laying through this funding.
