The U.S. Senate on Tuesday passed its version of a $1 trillion infrastructure funding package that provides $550 billion in new monies. The passage of the bipartisan legislation, which was approved in a 69-30 vote Tuesday, follows weeks of debate in the Senate.


The bill will now move to the U.S. House, where it could face some challenges from more progressive Democrats in the chamber. Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-Oregon) reportedly railed against the Senate bill recently and has also pressed for a conference committee to resolve differences in the House and Senate versions of the bill.
