House Democrats last Wednesday unveiled a $760 billion framework to fund infrastructure investments over five years. Pushing through a substantial infrastructure package in an election year is going to be tough and the framework is largely seen as an effort by Democrats to take their first steps on a top campaign priority following impeachment.

The framework notably does not specify how to pay for the increased funding and Republicans outlined their own set of priorities on Tuesday ahead of the release of Democrats’ framework, including addressing the long-term sustainability of the Highway Trust Fund, addressing infrastructure for rural communities and ensuring state flexibility for infrastructure needs.
