Route Fifty - Daniel C. Vock
Republicans are clashing with the Biden administration over the rollout of the $1.2 trillion package, including on priorities like getting more electric vehicles on the road.
With control of Congress up for grabs this fall, congressional Republicans on Tuesday sought to portray President Biden’s signature infrastructure law as an overambitious flop that would hamper the U.S. economy.
During a marathon hearing that stretched more than four hours with Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, several Republican House members faulted the administration on a variety of issues connected to the infrastructure law.
U.S. Rep. Sam Graves of Missouri, the top-ranking Republican on the panel, said that spiraling inflation limited the buying power of states and everyone else trying to build new projects with money from the $1.2 trillion package.
