Blunt Backs Infrastructure Bill Moving Forward, Hawley Skeptical of Spending

A new bipartisan infrastructure bill is getting a chance in the U-S Senate- at 17 Republicans joined Senate Democrats in moving the bill forward.

Missouri Senator Roy Blunt joined conservatives in adjoining states – Like Chuck Grassley in Iowa and Mitch McConnell in Kentucky – to get to 67 Senate votes.

The final agreement with the White House is a $1.2 trillion bill over eight years, with $550 billion in new spending. The bill is far from a final vote and it doesn’t look like it will have the support from Missouri’s other Senator Josh Hawley.

Senators are working on the final text of the bill.
