Infrastructure deal clears another Senate hurdle as House Democrats threaten rebellion
The $550 billion infrastructure agreement cleared another Senate hurdle Friday, moving the sweeping package closer to becoming the first big bipartisan win under President Joe Biden.
But it's far from a done deal: The path is murky in the House, where some Democrats are rebelling.
The vote was 66 to 28, signaling broad support in the Senate for a deal led by Sens. Kyrsten Sinema, D-Ariz., and Rob Portman, R-Ohio, to authorize $110 billion for new roads and $39 billion for public transit, among many other provisions.
