1 min read

After months of negotiation, the Senate voted 69-30 to pass the $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure plan, which includes $550 billion in new funding for transportation, broadband and utilities.

19 Republicans joined all 50 Democrats to pass the bill. The bill will now go to the House of Representatives.

“Today is a day of progress, as the Senate has passed the bipartisan infrastructure package and paved the way for not only rebuilding but reimagining our infrastructure for the 21st Century Economy,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said in a statement. “The leadership of President Biden has seized this once-in-a-century opportunity to Build Back Better for our country. This bipartisan package helps rebuild the middle class as it rebuilds our infrastructure — creating good-paying American jobs and turbocharging American competitiveness and growth.”

According to Pelosi, the House will continue to work with the Senate to ensure that “our priorities For The People are included in the final infrastructure and reconciliation packages, in a way that is resilient and will Build Back Better.”
