With Honor Action Praises the Successful Bipartisan Approach in the Senate on the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act

The Senate passed the bipartisan bill 69-30 with 19 Republicans and 50 Democrats voting in support of the bill

CHARLOTTE, NC – With Honor Action praises the bipartisan efforts behind the successful passage of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. This critical legislation, which provides historic and much needed investments in America’s infrastructure, passed the Senate with a bipartisan majority of 69 to 30, with 50 Democrats and 19 Republicans voting in support of the bill. As the bill moves to the House of Representatives, With Honor Action hopes to see this bipartisan approach continue.

“The passage of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act is proof that bipartisanship leads to progress. I am grateful for the work many Senators put into this important legislation and their commitment to working across the aisle,” says With Honor Action Co-Founder and CEO Rye Barcott. “Now we need to see the same willingness to compromise and work together continue in the House of Representatives.”
