The $1.2 trillion bipartisan bill has widespread support among Democrats and some Republicans. It includes funding for roads and bridges, high-speed internet, rail and transit, drinking water upgrades and other priorities meant to shore up the nation’s crumbling infrastructure.
The $3.5 trillion bill, which has been pushed by progressives, funds “human infrastructure,” like tackling climate change, expanding medicare and providing free-year community college.
The delay came after progressive and moderate Democrats failed to reach an agreement on the two bills. Progressives said they would not vote to pass the $1.2 trillion bill unless it was linked to the $3.5 trillion bill. Up to 50 House Democrats would have voted to kill the legislation, Congressional Progressive Caucus Chair Pramila Jayapal has said.
