Democrat lawmaker on bipartisan infrastructure bill: ‘Everyone will benefit’
Rep. Debbie Dingell, D-Mich., provides insight into the $1.2 trillion infrastructure package.
President Biden on Monday plans to sign the long-stalled $1.2 trillion infrastructure package into law, an integral part of his economic agenda and the largest investment in the nation's crumbling roads and bridges in decades.
The bill includes more than $500 billion in new spending that will be invested in "core" infrastructure projects such as roads, broadband internet and electric utilities over the next eight years. The White House has billed the measure as a "once-in-a-generation investment" and has projected that it will create 2 million new jobs.

The House approved the bill on Nov. 5 in a 228-206 vote, with 13 Republicans joining Democrats. It ended weeks of back-and-forth negotiations between moderate and progressive lawmakers, who wanted to tether the smaller infrastructure bill to a larger tax and spending plan to ensure that centrist Democrats supported both. The Senate had already passed the legislation on a 69-30 vote in August.
