Senate Unveils $1 Trillion Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill

Senators unveiled a nearly $1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure package late on Sunday night after working through the weekend.

The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act is 2,700 pages long and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-NY, said the final vote could be held "in a matter of days."

"It's been decades, decades since Congress passed such a significant standalone investment and I salute the hard work that was done here by everybody," Schumer added.

As a key part of President Biden's agenda, the infrastructure plan calls for $550 billion in new spending over five years on the nation's roads, bridges, broadband, and electric grid.

One of the lead negotiators, Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, D-Ariz., said the bill shows "we can put aside our own political differences for the good of the country."

Republican negotiator Sen. Rob Portman of Ohio added that the final product will be "great for the American people."
