Yahoo Finance's Jessica Smith discusses President Biden ’s plan to sign the .2 trillion infrastructure plan into law on Monday, the outlook for the Build Back Better package, and the latest news from Washington. The White House said on Sunday that Biden named former New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu to supervise implementation of the infrastructure effort. The ceremony, scheduled to be held on the White House South Lawn to accommodate a big crowd, represents an increasingly rare case where members of both parties are willing to stand together and celebrate a bipartisan achievement.

The bill passed the Senate back in August but was delayed in the House as Democrats initially planned on using the bill as leverage to pass a social spending bill. Following Democratic losses in Virginia, party leaders in the House decided to vote on the bill on Nov. 5 despite the other bill remaining in limbo.

The bill passed the Senate 69-30 and the House 228-206.

Thirteen House Republicans voted for the bill, with many facing backlash from their party. Six Democrats in the House voted against it, demanding it advance alongside the social spending bill. In the Senate, all Democrats and 19 Republicans supported it, including Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.
