US Senate officially passes $1 trillion infrastructure bill




We’ve been talking about it for months, but the day is finally here

The US Senate has officially passed the $1 trillion dollar infrastructure bill in what is a major win for Biden and the American people.

The bill was first on the list of Biden’s priorities, with Senators voting 69-30 to advance the big spend to the House of Representatives for further consideration.

It’s unclear how the bill will be viewed in the House… with a number of progressive Democrats already flagging that it isn’t progressive enough or as wide-reaching as it should be.

It follows Speaker Nancy Pelosi saying she won’t agree to the trillion-dollar spend until the Senate also passes part two of the infrastructure plan – a $3.5 trillion package.

Regardless, the current bill gaining bipartisan support in the Senate is a significant victory for Biden’s presidency.

In a joint statement, those who led the negotiations say:

“Congress has talked about truly modernizing our nation’s infrastructure for as long as we can remember… the United States Senate delivered so that we can finally give the American people the safe, reliable, and modern infrastructure they deserve”.

The bipartisan bill includes around $550 billion in new spending… which will be invested in infrastructure projects like roads, bridges, broadband, water and rail.

Vice President Kamala Harris says it won’t be the middle class who pay for the package.
