Update: The conference committee has posted this summary (PDF).
The deal has been sealed. It could be signed Monday. But does it deliver?
With House and Senate negotiators agreeing on a compromise bill Wednesday evening, new details are trickling out. Speaker Nancy Pelosi released an overview (PDF) that includes $29 billion for highways, $50 billion for alternative energy and $400 tax cuts for most Americans.
As more details come, we’ll be updating our chart that compared the House and the Senate bills.
House negotiators managed to squeeze back in some school construction money that had been cut by the Senate. The $14 billion pot that had been in the House bill is gone. But states can use some of the $41 billion they’ll get overall to avoid education cutbacks and layoffs for school repairs. See how much your school district lost in construction funding assuming states don’t put it back in.
The bill is slated to be made available this afternoon.
We’ll continue to analyze state-by-state breakdowns to see if the money will flow to where it’s needed the most. See our map comparing the House infrastructure spending and unemployment.
