Floor Schedule and Procedure:

Complete Consideration of H.R. 3684 – INVEST in America Act (Rep. DeFazio – Transportation and Infrastructure)

This bill includes a five-year surface transportation reauthorization reported from the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee as well as clean water and drinking water-related authorization bills from T&I and the Energy and Commerce Committee respectively.

The surface transportation reauthorization will put Americans to work rebuilding and modernizing our nation’s roads, bridges, transit, and rail in a manner that will make significant progress in the fight against climate change.  This legislation will make our transportation infrastructure safer and more equitable, ensuring that all communities are connected to economic opportunity and correcting the harms inflicted by previous highway construction that divided and destroyed neighborhoods.

The additional water-related bills would 1) authorize historic levels of federal assistance to states and communities for wastewater infrastructure through the Clean Water State Revolving Fund; 2) authorize historic funding levels for the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund and make improvements to prioritize replacing lead service lines, improving water quality in schools, and addressing needs in territories; 3) reform the broken standard setting process to make it work better to protect public health from PFAS and other toxics; and, 4) create a new program for debt forgiveness and rate assistance to low-income water customers.
