You can look elsewhere to find out details of the bill (we really do not want to bore you), but we do want to emphasize that much of the bill will funnel money to digital companies across a broad range of projects.  This could be a good thing.

1.  Many billions will go to develop broadband access.

2.  Many billions will go to digitize medical and related health care records.

3.  Many billions will go to upgrading the national power grid–specifically, to make it a “smart” grid.

4.  Many billions will go to upgrading “classic” infrastructure like bridges and roads–which will undoubtedly include digital initiatives.

Oh yes, the bill will change in the Senate and in committee, but these focal points are not likely to change.
