U.S. Department of Transportation Highlights the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law’s Historic Investments in Tribal Roads and Transit

美运输部强调两党基础设施法案在道路和运输方面的历史性投资

 

WASHINGTON – The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law that President Biden signed this week includes historic levels of funding for transportation projects on Tribal lands, reflecting an urgency to address long-standing inequities with new funding for safety improvements and better roads, bridges, and transit on Tribal lands across the country.

华盛顿——美国总统拜登于本周签署的两党基础设施法案包括使道路交通项目达到历史性资金水平,该措施反映了解决长期存在的不平等问题的紧迫性,需要为改善全国道路上的安全、改善道路、桥梁和交通提供新的资金。


“The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law is historic for many reasons, including its investments that will deliver better, safer transportation infrastructure in Indian Country,” U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg said. “My Department looks forward to working closely with our Tribal partners on a range of infrastructure projects that create good jobs, protect our environment, and build a foundation for economic opportunity that will last for generations.”

美运输部长皮特·布蒂吉格(Pete Buttigieg)表示:“《两党基础设施法案》具有历史性意义,原因有很多,其中包括它的投资将为印度提供更好、更安全的交通基础设施。”“美国运输部期待着与我们的部落伙伴在一系列基础设施项目上进行密切合作,创造良好的就业机会,保护我们的环境,并奠定基础提供更多经济机会,使其能够惠及几代人。”

 

SAFETY: Native Americans are two to three times more likely to die in car crashes than any other ethnic group and have the highest per capita rate of total traffic deaths, which is why the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law’s investments in safety and better infrastructure are critical. USDOT’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is leading a multi-agency effort to address highway safety in the Four Corners Region of New Mexico, Colorado, Arizona, and Utah and in other areas of Indian Country.

安全:美国印第安人死于车祸的可能性是其他种族的两到三倍,人均交通死亡率最高,这就是为什么两党基础设施法案在安全和更好的基础设施方面的投资至关重要。美国交通部的国家公路交通安全管理局正领导一个多边机构,努力解决新墨西哥州、科罗拉多州、亚利桑那州和犹他州的四角地区和其他印第安国家地区的公路安全问题。


JOBS AND EQUITY: Since June, USDOT’s Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization has been working with the Department of Interior’s Bureau of Indian Affairs to ensure Tribes have equitable opportunities to compete for federal contracts as part of rebuilding our nation’s infrastructure.

就业与公平:6月以来,USDOT的小企业和弱势企业利用办公室一直在与内政部的印第安事务局合作,以确保地方有公平的机会竞争联邦合同,这是重建我国基础设施的一部分。

 

UPHOLDING COMMITMENTS: This month, USDOT signed an updated Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) stating a commitment to protect Tribal treaty rights and similar Tribal rights in agency decision-making processes. USDOT also signed on as a supporting agency to two MOUs that would both help protect historic properties of cultural and religious importance to Tribes and help preserve Native languages.

遵守承诺:本月,美国运输部签署了一份最新的谅解备忘录,承诺在机构决策过程中保护部落条约权利和类似的地方权利。美国交通部还作为支持机构签署了两份谅解备忘录,这两份备忘录将有助于保护对地方具有重要文化和宗教意义的历史财产,并有助于保护土著语言。


WHAT’S NEXT: In the coming weeks and months, USDOT will announce additional resources, including financial, technical, and legal assistance, designed to create jobs and promote safety and equity through infrastructure investment on Tribal and rural lands.

下一步:在未来几周和几个月内,美国运输部将宣布额外资源,包括财政、技术和法律援助,旨在通过对地方和农村土地的基础设施投资创造就业机会,促进安全和公平。
