Special Update from Scenic America: 
Infrastructure Bill Passes with Support for Scenic Priorities

Dear Scenic America supporter,

It has been an exciting week at Scenic America. I am thrilled to report that the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act was signed into law yesterday with provisions included for two of our key policy priorities: utility undergrounding and flexible program funding for gateway communities. Last Wednesday, the U.S. Supreme Court heard oral arguments in the City of Austin v. Reagan case. 

Click the links below for detailed updates on both important topics. Also, be sure to cast your vote for the "Fan Favorite" category winner in our inaugural photo contest. 

Thank you for your support, and best wishes for a happy Thanksgiving week. 


Mark Falzone, President
Scenic America

P.S. We couldn't achieve these milestones without your support. With the giving season right around the corner, please consider making a gift to Scenic America to help us keep the momentum going. 


Infrastructure Bill Signed Into Law

President Biden signed this historic $1 trillion bill into law on Monday, November 15. The legislation includes support for utility undergrounding and flexible funding for gateway communities. 


Supreme Court Hears Arguments in Austin v. Reagan

On Wednesday, November 10, the Supreme Court heard oral arguments in Austin v. Reagan. While points raised in the scenic Amici Curiae brief resonated with some of the justices, the discussion reflected the complexity of the issue. The decision is expected in the first half of 2022.   


Photo Contest Update: Help Choose a Fan Favorite

Our judges have weighed in on the hundreds of entries we received for our inaugural America the Beautiful photo contest. Now it's your turn to help us pick a fan favorite. Voting ends November 19 at 12 pm EST.
