President Joe Biden and congressional Democrats wrapped up another legislative win in an unusual Saturday session of the Senate that saw the legislature vote to move further ahead on a bipartisan infrastructure deal.
The vote highlighted another area where Biden has gone further than his predecessor Donald Trump, who could not get Congress to agree to a deal on the vital topic.
“The measure would provide a massive injection of federal money for a range of public works programs, from roads and bridges to broadband internet access, drinking water and more. In a rare stroke of bipartisanship, Republicans joined the Democrats to overcome the 60-vote threshold needed to advance the measure toward final votes. The vote was 67-27, a robust tally. If approved, the bill would go to the House,” the Associated Press reported.
Biden has made shepherding the agreement through Congress one of his top priorities and leaders in cities and towns from across the country have expressed support for the package, which would provide vital funds to stop key structures like bridges from collapsing into rivers.
