California and the Valley stand to gain plenty from President Biden’s trillion-dollar infrastructure package.

We talked one-on-one with Fresno Congressman Jim Costa to learn what’s in it for the Valley.

Water storage, drinking water infrastructure, widening sections of highways 99 and 41, expanding broadband access, airport improvements and the list goes on.

Water storage gets $1.5 billion in the package. There’s a potential to expand B.F. Sisk Dam or build Sites Reservoir in the Sacramento Valley or Del Puerto Canyon Reservoir near Patterson.

Let’s be honest, we haven’t built a new water structure in a long time. We passed a bill in 2014 but we still haven’t spent much of that money.
