Republicans to Offer Their Own Infrastructure Plan in Response to $2.2T Proposal

Republicans plan to offer an infrastructure bill of their own that would spend about $650 billion, a GOP source tells Fox News, as the White House and congressional Democrats continue to push President Biden’s $2 trillion-plus spending plan.

The proposal comes after Republicans for weeks complained that the president’s “American Jobs Plan” spent well under half of its money on infrastructure and as the White House has said it’s open to negotiations.

Fox News is told that the GOP plan will include money for broadband internet. The GOP bill is expected to be offered sometime during the May recess.

Republicans have expressed doubts about the White House’s sincerity on infrastructure negotiations, especially after the president spurned the efforts of several moderate GOP senators to negotiate over coronavirus relief.
