Build Back Better Act?

After passage of the Bipartisan infrastructure bill, under an agreement by President Biden, Speaker Pelosi, and the Congressional Black Caucus, the House will now vote on the Build Back Better Act the week of November 15th.  The bill includes provisions to expand access to health care, education, paid family leave, home care, childcare, public housing, and climate change. The vote is expected to take place once the Congressional Budget Office determines the cost of the legislation. After House passage, the Senate will take up the bill, but this will be an arduous process with hundreds of amendments and will face opposition from Sens. Manchin (D-WV) and Sinema (D-AZ) on the size of the legislation.
