An article by Jason Jordan and Emily Pasi for the American Planning Association calls attention to the planning-specific provisions included in the $2 trillion American Jobs Plan proposed late in March by the Biden administration.
To summarize: "Provisions addressing transportation and broadband infrastructure, climate change, and housing - all elements of APA's federal agenda — are central to the American Jobs Plan and others have important implications for a wide range of planning activities."
The article includes a detailed breakdown of proposed spending in the categories of 1) transportation and broadband, 2) housing, 3) climate change, and 4) other key planning provisions.
The article also voices a few questions for Biden administration officials, written with implications for professional planners in mind.
