The United States Chamber of Commerce is withdrawing its support of the Senate passed $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill hours after Punchbowl News reported House republicans were booting it from its strategy.
This is a big deal because the Chamber’s chief policy officer, Neil Bradley announced a policy shift in a letter to its Board of Directors on Monday.
President Biden formally linked the hard infrastructure bill with the $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation package during a meeting with House Democrats on Friday.
The two bills which are seen as top priorities in fulfilling Biden’s agenda have long been linked.
- This is the prime reason House Reublicans leaders have gone against the bipartisan bill.
- The Punchbowl News story was seen as a large formal rejection.
