A bipartisan budget deal announced by Senate leaders includes $20 billion for U.S. infrastructure programs, an investment plan that comes ahead of the Trump administration's highly anticipated rebuilding proposal. The funds would go toward “existing” projects for water and energy infrastructure as well as expanding broadband to rural regions and improving surface transportation said Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY). Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said the budget agreement "will clear the way for a new investment in our nation’s infrastructure, a bipartisan priority shared by the president and lawmakers of both parties."
