Bipartisan $1.2T Infrastructure Bill Expected to Pass in Senate Today


What Happened:

  • On Tuesday, the Senate is expected to pass the nearly $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill with around 70 Senators in support. The vote will be at approximately 11 AM EST.

  • The enormous 2,700 page bill took weeks of negotiation and the passage will mark a major step towards achieving one of the Biden administration’s key campaign goals.

  • Said Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D), it's "the first time the Senate has come together around such a package in decades."

  • Over half the bill, $550 Billion, is dedicated to new federal spending, $73 billion to rebuild the electric grid, $66 billion for passenger and freight trains, $65 billion to expand Internet access, $55 billion for waste and water infrastructure, $40 billion for bridges, $39 billion to help modernize public transit and $7.5 billion to help create a network of charging stations for electric vehicles.
