STEM City USA, Career Communications Group, has announced the date for its “Infrastructure Bill Town Hall” with Senator Ben Cardin (D-Md.), Chair of the Subcommittee on Transportation and Infrastructure (Environment and Public Works Committee).
The senator is also chair of the Small Business & Entrepreneurship Committee and a national leader on fiscal issues while representing the people of Maryland in the U.S. Senate.
The hour-long town hall will take place Monday, July 26, and the wide-ranging discussion will include tips and advice on how minority-owned businesses can benefit from the Infrastructure Bill. Time 11:00 AM Eastern Time (the US and Canada). Click here to register.
Earlier this month, the U.S. House of Representatives approved the surface transportation and water infrastructure bill, which news outlets described as a first step toward the infrastructure legislation that Congress hopes to complete in September.
The bill, which includes provisions from President Biden’s trillion-dollar proposal, authorizes additional spending for roads, bridges, highway safety, electric vehicle (EV) charging stations, rail, transit, drinking, and wastewater infrastructure.
During CCG’s town hall, Senator Cardin will take questions from the small business community, university representatives, and community organizations on minority engagement as it relates to the new Infrastructure Bill.
Attendees will also have time to ask questions on how to gain certification through relevant training and educational programs, and how to create awareness of the bill’s impact.
Small business owners, students, faculty, staff, and people from historically underserved communities are encouraged to attend.
