US Senate passes Biden’s massive infrastructure bill

The US Senate approves the colossal $1.2 trillion infrastructure investment plan backed by US President Joe Biden, a huge win for the Democratic president.

The package described by the White House as “historic” only needed a simple majority to pass, and receives the rare backing of several Republicans.

The measure now goes to the House of Representatives for final approval, where its future is more uncertain as tensions have emerged within the Democratic party, which holds a narrow majority.
