April 22, 2022

In case you missed it, yesterday, President Joe Biden and the U.S. Department of Transportation announced $6.4 billion to help states reduce carbon emissions under the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. Nevada will receive more than $57 million over the next five years as part of the Carbon Reduction Program. Please see the below quotes from Governor Steve Sisolak and Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) Director Kristina Swallow:

“Nevada is home to some of the fastest warming cities in the country, and this critical funding will help us address our accelerating climate crisis and protect Nevadans and their families,” Gov. Sisolak said. “I am grateful for Nevada’s federal delegation, who played a leading role in securing passage of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and the tens of millions in funding to help address climate change heading our way.”

“This critical funding will help NDOT and its local partners invest in projects that will improve multimodal options across the state while reducing carbon emissions for future generations,” NDOT Director Swallow said. “Our team is eager to work with Governor Sisolak and our state and local partners to leverage this funding and seek creative, collaborative, and sustainable solutions to our transportation challenges.”
