Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill Stalled

Debate among Democrats led to an announcement on Friday, Oct. 1 of an indefinite delay of a House vote on final passage of the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA). Originally scheduled for Sept. 27, then pushed back to Sept. 30, the longer-term deferral of final passage resulted from ongoing insistence by House Progressives that the infrastructure bill’s fate remain tied to passage of a $3.5 trillion tax-and-spending bill funding social infrastructure priorities.

President Joe Biden traveled to Capitol Hill on the afternoon of Oct. 1 to speak with House Democrats and publicly supported the conclusion that both infrastructure and the budget package should be voted on together by the House.
