What's at stake

Infrastructure. President Biden’s Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act will invest $3.5 billion to address the over 2,000 miles of roads in poor condition, and over $561 million to address the nearly 250 bridges in poor condition. This legislation will also invest $1.3 billion in Connecticut’s public transportation systems.

Pandemic recovery. Connecticut is struggling to reach pre-pandemic employment levels. More people are retiring than are moving into the state. A child care shortage throughout the pandemic has been particularly harmful to Connecticut’s recovery. However, the state is working to attract new businesses and lower the cost of living.

Climate change. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, most of Connecticut was warmed two or three degrees Fahrenheit over the last century. Sea levels are continuing to rise across the New England region, meaning that coastal cities in Connecticut are more vulnerable to storm surges. Warming temperatures could also reduce Connecticut’s $70 million agricultural output, which makes up 13% of the state’s revenue.
