Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal Passes Senate
Earlier in the week on Tuesday, after much debate, the Senate passed a $1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure package on a 69-30 vote, with 19 Republicans joining the united 50 Democrats. The package included funding for traditional infrastructure projects, such as repairing roads and bridges, improving airports, as well as internet access and working to modernize the passenger rail system, all while creating valuable jobs.
“We must pass both the $1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill and the $3.5 trillion human infrastructure bill in order to ‘build back better’ and fulfill President Biden’s priorities,” said Robert Roach, Jr., President of the Alliance.
