Panel: The New Infrastructure Bill – What\’s in it for you?

Our very own Founder was asked to participate in a Panel conversation about the (potentially!) upcoming Infrastructure Bill. Homesteady represented the Private sector and what / how the Bill could impact our future.

As of this writing, the Bill is still not approved, but find here a Fact Sheet from the White House.

Speakers in the panel included Congresswoman Julia Brownley  and Assemblymember Jacqui Irwin, amongst others.

You can watch this very engaged conversation in the Youtube video below. Enjoy, and share your opinion on this topic by leaving us comments!
