House lawmakers passed the bipartisan infrastructure bill. Late on Friday, the bipartisan infrastructure bill passed in a 229-to-206 vote.
A total of 13 Republicans crossed party lines to vote for the bill. However, six Democrats including Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.) voted against the measure.
The bill allocates $1.2 trillion for roads, bridges, public transportation systems and broadband internet. It will also be funding the electric grid, water systems, airports, as well as electric vehicles.
I am urging all members to vote for both the rule for consideration of the Build Back Better Act and final passage of the Bipartisan Infrastructure bill tonight.
I am confident that during the week of November 15, the House will pass the Build Back Better Act.

The bill was originally crafted in the Senate and is now headed straight to Joe Biden’s desk. However, the reconciliation bill will likely stall in the upper chamber amid Democrat infighting and near total opposition from Republicans.
