House Plans Consideration of $1.5 Trillion Infrastructure Bill

House Democrats plan to schedule a vote before July 4 on a comprehensive infrastructure measure that aims to modernize freight corridors, reduce traffic congestion and promote climate change resilience infrastructure.
Ahead of its floor consideration expected as soon as June 30, House floor managers are considering amendments to the 10-year, $1.5 trillion measure.
The infrastructure bill would address multiple priorities House Democrats have promoted during the congressional session. For instance, investments in infrastructure resilience would seek to ensure new projects have the capability of withstanding the impact of severe weather events as they also attempt to reduce carbon pollution.
Additionally, the legislation would seek to repair and upgrade highways and bridges via investments of about $300 billion. Transit systems would receive about $100 billion, and the advancement of complete streets designs would promote the safety of commuters, passengers and pedestrians.
