Democrats Bipartisan So-Called ‘Infrastructure’ Bill has more pages than the Holy Bible | 2,700 Pages Long;
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said she won’t bring the bipartisan bill for a vote unless it also comes with the $3.5 trillion reconciliation infrastructure bill.
- The bill also requires the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) to conduct a study on the enhanced unemployment benefits that came from the Democrats’ $1.9 trillion coronavirus aid bill, also known as the American Rescue Plan.
- The legislation also requires the Secretary of Energy to conduct a study on the projected job losses and impacts from the Biden administration’s cancellation of the Keystone XL pipeline.
- Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said infrastructure would be finished “in a matter of days.” Now that the Senate advanced the legislative vehicle for the bipartisan infrastructure bill, the Senate could focus this upcoming week on the $1.2 trillion bipartisan bill.
