GOP senators unveil $568 billion infrastructure counteroffer

Zachary Halaschak of The Washington Examiner reports that GOP senators have unveiled a $568 billion infrastructure counteroffer.

The C3 Take
  • The proposal allocates $299 billion to traditional infrastructure, $65 billion for broadband upgrades, and $61 billion for public transit.
  • The $568 billion price tag is significantly less than that of the $1.9 trillion Build Back Better Plan.
  • Infrastructure is an important issue that should receive bipartisan support. We can improve our roads and bridges without ballooning our national debt.

“The biggest chunk of the proposal targets the country’s roads and bridges with $299 billion in spending and represents more than half of the total framework. It also pitches $65 billion for improving U.S. broadband infrastructure and $61 billion toward public transit systems.”
