Biden to unveil $3 trillion infrastructure plan in Pittsburgh next week

President Biden will travel next week to Pittsburgh, where he kicked off his presidential run in 2019, to unveil his sweeping, $3 trillion infrastructure package that is expected to include funds for roads and bridges as well as addressing climate change and income inequality.

The president’s trip to the blue-collar steel city next Wednesday will build on his administration’s “Build Back Better” campaign and comes on the heels of the passage of the $1.9 trillion coronavirus stimulus package earlier this month.

Biden is still reportedly huddling with members of his administration and Democratic congressional leaders to fine-tune details, and the White House has been careful not to release any of the plan’s features as they may still change.

But reports say legislative measures will be twofold — one dealing with traditional infrastructure projects like roads and bridges, as well as electric car charging stations and enhancing cellular networks.

The other would deal with universal pre-K, a national child care initiative, free community college tuition and paid family leave.

Asked Wednesday what the infrastructure package would contain, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said she couldn’t talk in depth about it but outlined it in broad terms.

“I can’t preview for you — I know you’re not exactly asking this — what will be in the package that he’s still discussing. But obviously, roads, rails, and bridges are part of what everybody historically thinks about,” she said at her press briefing.

“But there’s also components like our cyber infrastructure. There’s lots of ways to look at infrastructure. But what is in a package that he proposes in the coming months, I don’t have anything more to detail for you,” she added.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has reached out to her caucus to begin working with their Republican colleagues “to craft a big, bold and transformational infrastructure package.”

She also said the intent of the plan is to build on the COVID relief bill and help “people in every zip code by creating good-paying jobs for the future.”

But Republicans, who did not support the stimulus plan, have expressed opposition to Biden’s infrastructure package, with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) characterizing it as a “Trojan horse” ​for Democrats intent on raising taxes to pay for the spending.
