The infrastructure bill of the US Senate, which is a partisan affair, finally advanced to the next step. The rule of the filibuster which was associated with regard to the said bill was broken. This incident is huge as the bill has proceeded after about a couple of months. The incident took place on the 7th of August. The total amount of the said bill is 1.2 trillion USD. There were so many negotiations that took place on behalf of the infrastructure bill.
Infrastructure Bill’s Uncertain Future
As the infrastructure bill moves forward, a great problem has been solved as the agenda of Joe Biden, the country’s President might come to reality. However, nobody can be so sure that it will face any sort of uncertainties in the future. The bill was supported on Saturday by a total of 18 members belonging to the Republican Party. Though the members of the US Senate are quite confident about the status of the bill, nothing can be said about how soon that is to take place. Chuck Schumer, the majority leader of the US Senate, stated that there would be another meeting on the 8th of August to further discuss matters about the infrastructure bill.
The majority leader stated that all of the lawmakers were trying their best to bring about the amendments. He also acknowledged the fact that time was very little on their hands at the moment. He also displayed his hope for completing all the works related to the bipartisan bill as soon as possible. Judd Deere, the spokesperson of Bill Hagerty, the freshman Senator, stated the fact that the Tennessee-based Republican had no such plans of contributing towards speeding up the process of the bill by giving his consent. This statement was made on Saturday.
