House Sets Up Vote for Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill as Larger Spending Package Moves Forward

HeadlineSep 27, 2021

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says the House will vote on the bipartisan $1 trillion infrastructure bill Thursday, pushing an earlier deadline that had been set for today. Lawmakers will vote just hours before government funding — and some key transportation programs — are set to expire. Progressives Democrats said they will not back the infrastructure bill without Congress also approving the $3.5 trillion, 10-year spending plan, which expands the social safety net and addresses the climate crisis. The House Budget Committee on Saturday moved that measure forward for a House vote.
