According to a White House memo, 有 3,353 bridges and over 7,540 miles of highway in poor condition in Pennsylvania. The memo said that, if approved, the bipartisan infrastructure plan would give Pennsylvania more than $ 11 billion for federal-aid highways and $ 1.6 billion for bridges. The plan would also give the state nearly $ 3 billion to improve public transportation options.

As for the Build Back Better package, 的 白色的房子 said itwill make life better for millions of working families in Pennsylvaniaby providing tax cuts for families with children and tax cuts for childless workers.

The president will also pitch at least two years of free community college to all students and highlight that his plan would expand the maximum Pell Grants for student borrowers.

Biden is also expected to highlight how his plan could lower 住房 costs and increase the supply of affordable housing.

The president’s expected pitch to Pennsylvanians comes after he reportedly detailed a potential deal for the spending proposal of between $ 1.75 万亿和 $ 1.9 兆. The Washington Post first reported the president’s counteroffer for a downsized plan from his original $ 3.5 万亿美元的提案.

The revised package includes many of the original plan’s signature proposals, including universal pre-K, substantial investment in green energy and expanded Medicare benefits. 然而, the sources told Washington Post the details were still subject to change.

The latest spending benchmark indicates Biden and other Democratic leaders have made significant cuts to their vast spending plan to achieve a compromise that satisfies both moderate and progressive Democratic lawmakers. Democratic leaders have set an Oct. 31 deadline to reach an agreement on the spending plan and a separate $ 1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure deal.

MANCHIN SAYS CARBON TAX NOT ON THE TABLE ‘RIGHT NOW’

During the White House daily briefing Tuesday, press secretary Jen Psaki said the administration wascontinuing to make progresstoward an agreement, with Biden playing a leading role in negotiations.

民主的 moderate Sens. Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona said they would not support Biden’s original $ 3.5 trillion spending plan without major cuts. Manchin has publicly called for a spending plan of closer to $ 1.5 兆.

It’s unclear if House progressives will back a spending plan at the lower end of the proposed range. Progressives have pushed Democratic leaders not to reduce the spending plan’s scope, even if it meant funding programs over shorter periods of time.

星期二, House Progressive Caucus Chair Rep. Pramila Jayapal expressed optimism that a deal would be reached, though she noted Biden hasconsistently laid out a number that is somewhere between $ 1.9 和 $ 2.2 [兆].”
