Sunday shows progress: House passes bipartisan infrastructure bill; Democrats suffer electoral defeat in Virginia

The passage of an approximately $ 1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill in the House after weeks of infighting among lawmakers, and the defeat of Democrats in the Virginia gubernatorial race, is expected to dominate the Sunday entertainment circuit in Virginia. this week.

Late on Friday, moderate Democrats scored a victory after the House voted 228-206 to move a $ 1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill to President BidenJoe BidenHouse Passes 1 Trillion Infrastructure Bills, Advances Social Spending Plan Virginia Democrats Concede Loss of State House Liberals, Moderate Strike Deal on Biden’s Agenda, Clearing the Way for MORE votesdesk.

In an agreement between the Congressional Black Caucus, the Congressional Progressive Caucus, and the moderate Blue Dog Democrats, the three agreed to pass infrastructure legislation while a rule of procedure would be passed for voting on the Democrats’ social spending bill. for the future.

The agreement between the three also stated that if the $ 1.75 trillion social spending bill packed with Democratic priorities were to receive a Congressional Budget Office (CBO) score that aligned with White House estimates , the moderates would vote for the bill.

But the successful passage of the $ 1.2 trillion infrastructure bill was not without its own setbacks. Progressives and moderates were at a standstill in moving forward with President Biden’s national agenda. The progressives argued that they wanted both the highway and bridge law and the social spending law passed together, while the moderates resisted their price and included private initiatives.

The House of Representatives failed multiple times to put the bipartisan bill on the floor for a vote, as progressives previously threatened to slow down the bill, and some progressives still voted against the infrastructure bill on Friday for the night.

Six progressive Democrats voted against moving the bill to Biden’s desk, while 13 Republicans voted for the bill. However, most Democrats took the time to celebrate its passage.

“Tonight, the Chamber successfully moved the #BuildBackBetter Take more action along the way to the final passage. I look forward to submitting this transformative investment in working families to the Senate soon, ”House Majority Representative James Clyburn (DS.C.) tweeted on passage of the bill.

“Finally, infrastructure week!” Biden exclaimed Saturday, nodding at a recurring joke among lawmakers about generally failed plans to pass infrastructure proposals. “I’m happy to say that: infrastructure week.”
