House fails to pass Infrastructure Bill, extends current authorization for 30 days

With the House unable to pass the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), Congress extended the current authorization, the FAST Act, by 30 days, ensuring that the Highway Trust Fund could remain solvent and to prevent any disruption to current projects. The House passed this extension Friday nightby a vote of 365-51. The Senate followed suit on Saturday under unanimous consent.

House Democrats will now have 30 days to find a solution between progressives and moderates on a separate multi-trillion dollar reconciliation package, that is currently holding up the passage of the IIJA.

The IIJA passed the Senate on a bipartisan 69-30 vote earlier this year, and the bill has bipartisan support in the House as well.
