Two moderate Democrats announced their support for the $3.5 trillion infrastructure bill after securing a scheduled vote for the $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill, Axios reported Sunday.
Rep. Vicente Gonzalez (D-TX) and Filemon Vela (D-TX), two of the moderate Democrats who demanded Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) hold a floor vote by Monday, said they would vote for the $3.5 trillion infrastructure bill.
The House plans to vote this week, potentially Monday or Tuesday, on the $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill, otherwise known as the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act.
“We support swift passage of the president’s $3.5 trillion reconciliation package. The bipartisan infrastructure framework would, on average, deliver $1.2 billion per congressional district,” the Democrats told Axios.
