WASHINGTON — The U.S. House of Representatives is expected to vote Thursday on a $715-billion infrastructure bill.
The “Invest In America Act” is focused on improving roads, bridges, transit and rail. It also aims to ensure clean drinking water.
House Democrats hope the bill can be used as a framework to start negotiations with the Senate and White House.
President Joe Biden and a bipartisan group of Senators reached a deal last week on top-line priorities, but many of the other details are still unclear.
This bill is likely to be approved in the democrat-controlled house.
It does not address how the new legislation would be funded.
