“House Democrats To Unveil Green Infrastructure Bill This Week”

“House Democrats plan to release a massive green infrastructure package this week, an aide confirmed to E&E News, ending months of anticipation among transportation and infrastructure advocates.

The long-awaited package, which would include reauthorization of expiring surface transportation provisions, is expected to resemble a framework unveiled in January (Greenwire, Jan. 29).

‘Text of the surface bill will be released in the coming days,' a House Democratic aide said in an email to E&E News yesterday. ‘Like the framework House Democrats released earlier this year, it's expected a number of items will address climate change and safety, which are focal points.'”
