Washington The US House of Representatives decided to postpone the vote on the Infrastructure Act on Thursday (local time). Nancy Pelosi, a spokeswoman for the U.S. House of Representatives, said some Democrats would have insisted not to vote if they could not vote on the $ 1.85 trillion social and climate package.

“The good news is that today most MPs who are not ready to vote yes have agreed to support the infrastructure bill,” Pelosi said in a statement to his Democrats. Dozens of House Democrats opposed a quick vote on a $ 1 trillion infrastructure bill, with its chairman saying Thursday that a deal on a major welfare bill is pending.

White House spokeswoman Jen Zhaki said the government hopes the $ 1.85 trillion package on the infrastructure bill and the fight against social spending and climate change will be passed by Congress soon. U.S. President Joe Biden on Thursday presented a plan for climate action, preschool and other social initiatives that he said would unite Democrats, but was rejected by some members of his party.
