Infrastructure Bill Was Historic: Both Process and Result

President Joe Biden’s tireless advocacy of a bipartisan infrastructure bill succeeded in the face of endless cynicism from Democrats and opposition from Trump-leaning Republicans.

The legislation passed the Senate with 18 Republican votes and the House with 12.

Presidents have promised major infrastructure spending for decades. The more than $1 trillion will provide funding for new and old projects long sought. It is also a down payment on Biden’s effort to show foreign allies and adversaries that American democracy can work.
