House Votes To Advance Infrastructure Bills And Budget Framework

WASHINGTON — Today, the House of Representatives voted to advance the bipartisan infrastructure framework (BIF) and the President’s proposed budget. Congresswoman Carolyn Bourdeaux voted in favor to advance these bills and support the needs of her community.

Congresswoman Carolyn Bourdeaux said, “When I came to Congress, I promised to help provide relief to Georgia families, and to promote a voting system that was free and fair to all. Today, I voted on a measure that works towards doing both of those things.

“We owe it to our children to make sure we aren’t saddling them with generations of debt, and that we are raising them in a country that protects and promotes their values. I’m proud to have worked with House leadership to create a path to invest in our physical infrastructure, address congestion in our community, tackle climate change, protect voting rights, expand Medicaid and child care, and so much more that will deliver much-needed relief to Georgia families while keeping our fiscal house in order. I’ll continue working to make sure we move forward in a responsible and pragmatic way.

“I am grateful that Congress came to a compromise to deliver for Georgia, the American people, and President Biden’s agenda.

“Onward and upward.”

Today’s rule on the floor passed 220-212. Speaker Pelosi committed to holding a vote on the BIF on the House Floor before September 27.
