House Passes $1.5 Trillion Infrastructure Package

On Wednesday, the House of Representatives passed its five-year, $1.5 trillion infrastructure package, the Moving Forward Act. The final vote was largely along party lines, 233-188, with three Republicans voting yes and two Democrats voting no.

The bill would authorize transportation, energy, water, brownfields, broadband, public housing, health care facilities, and public school construction programs over five years

"The overall bill is a non-starter in the Republican-led Senate," said ACEC Vice President Transportation Programs Matt Reiffer, "but we hope it will unlock bipartisan progress on a surface transportation reauthorization, water resources development, and other initiatives.
