Dear Colleague on the Advancement of the Build Back Better Act & Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework This Week

September 26, 2021
Press Release

Dear Democratic Colleague,

This week is a week of opportunity, as we work to keep government open, conclude negotiations on the Build Back Better Act and advance the Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework:

  • Last week, the House sent a CR to the Senate, on which we are awaiting Senate action.
  • Yesterday, the Budget Committee passed the Build Back Better Act out of committee.  We are now working together with the Senate and the White House on changes to this historic legislation For The People, which includes the Child Tax Credit, child care, paid family and medical leave, home health care, universal pre-K and more. This legislation is transformative for women in the workforce and for addressing the climate crisis.
  • Tomorrow, September 27, we will begin debate on the Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework on the Floor of the House and vote on it on Thursday, September 30, the day on which the surface transportation authorization expires.

Many thanks to our Caucus for making this an historic opportunity for our Country, as we honor President Biden’s vision for the future by passing his legislative agenda. 

Thank you for your ongoing leadership For The People.
