Governor Gordon Establishes Leadership Team to Ensure Federal Infrastructure Bill is Implemented on Wyoming’s Terms

The federal Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act that was passed by Congress and signed into law on November 15 by President Joe Biden will allow for new federal programs and grants that will be opening up in the coming months. Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon announced that he will coordinate efforts between agencies to analyze options, prioritize which grants to apply for, and to make sure state entities align efforts to Wyoming’s values.

To lead this effort, Rob Creager, a senior policy adviser in his office will be the IIJA Implementation Coordinator and will work with a group of agency personnel. Creager will be joined by Russell Noel, Deputy Director of the Wyoming Department of Administration and Information, who will provide assistance in coordinating the efforts of executive branch agencies that are receiving federal funds or applying for grants. Creager has served as Senior Business and Economic Development Policy Advisor, as well as federal liaison, in Governor Gordon’s office since 2019 and will continue in that role. He is a Casper native who holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Finance from the University of Wyoming.
