The U.S. The Senate voted to progress an infrastructure bill on Wednesday, a right step to the advancement of the Democrat’s economic agenda.
- The vote puts up the bill for debate, which once through, will put $550 billion to transportation, broadband, and utilities.
- The proposed amount was reduced from $ 579 billion amidst disputes between the democrats and republicans over its allocation to transit and broadband.
- The bill will only pass if Chuck Schumer, the Senate Majority Leader, will have 50 Democrats and 10 Republicans vote yes.
- House Speaker Nancy Pelosi maintains that she will not bring the infrastructure bill or the budget measure bill to the house until the Senate passes both.
- The Democrats still face a big task ahead as they push to pass a separate $ 3.5 trillion spending package in the months ahead.
