More than $2 billion are about to flow into Georgia for projects like mass transit and rural broadband. The money comes from Friday’s passage in the U.S. House of the Biden administration’s Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act.

U.S. Rep. Carolyn Bourdeaux, a Democrat who represents parts of the north and northeast metro Atlanta area, has long supported the proposal.

Bourdeaux sat down on WABE’s “All Things Considered” with host Jim Burress, who asked the lawmaker about how projects from Georgia’s 7th Congressional District might align with neighboring districts in Atlanta.
