Agency Action

Administration Action

White House Releases Infrastructure Deal Fact Sheet
The White House has shared a fact sheet for a bipartisan infrastructure agreement, struck after months of lawmaker negotiations. While the plan does not include many of the “human infrastructure” proposals President Joe Biden put forth in his American Jobs Plan and American Families Plan, such as Pell Grant expansion and free community college, he indicated that Democrats would still move forward on those issues in a second, larger infrastructure package advanced via the reconciliation process.
