Portman: U.S. Needs Bipartisan Infrastructure Plan

Shelly Capito’s (R-WV) $568 billion infrastructure proposal. According to Hannah News Service, Portman called for “traditional infrastructure” including roads, bridges, transit systems, port authorities, waterways, and broadband expansion in underserved areas — “rather than the kinds of things in the Biden package.”
