Congress Budget

Democrats celebrate on the House floor late Friday in Washington after the House approved a $1 trillion package of road and other infrastructure projects, notching a victory that President Joe Biden and his party had become increasingly anxious to claim.

WASHINGTON — Here’s a look at how area members of Congress voted over the previous week.

The Senate was in recess. The House and Senate are scheduled to come back to session next week.

House votes

Surface transport spending: The House has agreed to the Senate amendment to the Investing in a New Vision for the Environment and Surface Transportation in America Act (H.R. 3684), sponsored by Rep. Peter A. DeFazio, D-Ore., to authorize through fiscal 2026 surface transportation programs, including highways, mass transit, and rail, and set out fiscal 2022 spending on those programs. DeFazio called it “a transformative bill that will improve mobility, economic competitiveness, and the quality of life in communities across the country.” An opponent, Rep. Guy Reschenthaler, R-Pa., said it “prioritizes Green New Deal mandates above actual transportation needs.” The vote, on Nov. 5, was 228 yeas to 206 nays. Nays:

  • Hagedorn R-MN (1st), Emmer R-MN (6th)
