* The House passed a more than $1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill, sending it to President Joe Biden for his signature.
* The legislation would put $550 billion in new funding into transportation, broadband and utilities.
* The bill passed after a last-minute scramble to reach a consensus between progressive and centrists on how to pass the infrastructure package and a larger Democratic social spending plan.

13 Republicans joined with Democrats to vote yes. 6 Democrats voted no (which they did only after 7 Republicans had voted yes, so they knew they wouldn't kill it).
