How The Definition Of Infrastructure Is Changing

The question of what constitutes “infrastructure” has become one of the most hotly debated issues in the national media landscape.

On Aug. 10 of this year, the Biden Administration scored a bipartisan win with the Senate approval of the $1 Trillion Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act.

The road to ratification remains rocky as the bill now heads to the U.S. House, where it must vie for priority against a larger $3.5 billion social policy bill.

The $1 trillion bill is actually a truncated version of a $2.6 trillion proposal that would have included robust funding for areas not traditionally considered to be a part of national infrastructure.

Traditionally, infrastructure has been thought of as roads, bridges, ports, water systems, airports, and freight lines—what is considered to be “hard” infrastructure.
