Washingtton D.C. (November 5) - After months of tense negotiations, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a $1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill, 228-206. The measure includes significant investments in roads, bridges, railways and broadband internet. It passed late Friday night (November 4) largely along party lines, with 13 Republicans joining 215 Democrats in support of the legislation. But the bill also saw six progressive Democrats vote against it because a larger social spending measure failed to secure enough support for a floor vote on Friday. Here's a closer look at what's in the infrastructure bill: 


  • Roads, bridges, major projects: $110 billion
  • Passenger and freight rail: $66 billion
  • Public transit: $39 billion
  • Airports: $25 billion
  • Port infrastructure: $17 billion
  • Transportation safety programs: $11 billion
  • Electric vehicles: $7.5 billion
  • Zero and low-emission buses and ferries: $7.5 billion
