Joe Biden enacted the $ 1 trillion infrastructure project.

The measure is designed to repair bridges and highways and expand broadband internet access to millions of Americans.

Speakers included Senator Kyrsten Sinema, the Arizona Democratic centrist whose opposition to some tax increases has forced a reduction in supplemental legislation, Biden's $ 1.75 trillion social safety net plan called "Rebuild Better. ".

President Joe Biden signed into law a $ 1 trillion infrastructure bill Monday at a White House ceremony, which drew Democrats and Republicans pushing through the legislation through a deeply divided US Congress.

Biden signed an executive order ahead of the ceremony ordering US-made materials to be prioritized in infrastructure projects, the White House said. It also established a task force comprised of senior cabinet officials to guide the implementation of the legislation.

The measure is designed to create jobs nationwide by distributing billions of dollars to state and local governments to repair bridges and highways and expand broadband internet access to millions of Americans.

The enactment ceremony was a rare moment in a country where both sides were keen to come together and celebrate a bipartisan achievement.

Biden, whose approval has fallen due to his handling of the economy and other issues, heard supportive chants of "Joe, Joe, Joe" from some in the crowd and received a standing ovation as he stepped up to the microphone.

The president said that the bill's approval shows that "despite the cynics, Democrats and Republicans can unite and get results ." He called the law now a "blueprint to rebuild America."

"Too often in Washington, the reason we don't do things is that we insist on getting everything we want. With this law, we focus on getting things done," said Biden.
