US Senate advances trillion-dollar infrastructure Bill

The United States Senate has voted to advance President Joe Biden’s $1 trillion infrastructure package.

While this Bill is under discussion, a $3.5 trillion proposal promises to set off an even more intense round of debate.

The Bill includes a pathway to citizenship for DACA recipients and climate change provisions and the Republicans have criticised the package for not focussing enough on infrastructure.

US Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has slammed the proposal as “nothing less than Chairman Sanders’ dream shopping list”.
