White House unveils bipartisan infrastructure framework

Earlier this afternoon, President Biden announced that an agreement on a $1.2 trillion infrastructure framework had been made between the White House and members of the Senate from both parties. This bipartisan plan lays out an additional $579 billion in new spending, with $109 billion allocated towards roads, bridges and major projects and another $11 billion marked for safety.

“ATSSA commends the agreement reached today between the White House and the bipartisan group of Senate negotiators,” ATSSA President and CEO Stacy Tetschner said. “Importantly, this agreement includes an additional $11 billion investment in safety projects. Bipartisan agreements of this magnitude are not always easy, but Americans are demanding passage of an infrastructure package…and it is time for Congress and the White House to deliver. ATSSA members look forward to working with members of Congress from both parties to finalize this deal and get to work saving lives on U.S. roadways.”

The passage of the eight-year plan still has a long road ahead, as the plan still needs the support of 60 senators in total to pass the Senate. Additionally, President Biden stated that the passage of companion legislation done through the reconciliation process would need to happen in order for him to sign off on the full package.
