Democrats emphasize infrastructure in “phase 4” coronavirus proposal
Washington — House Democrats unveiled a proposal Wednesday to bolster the country’s infrastructure to mitigate the economic fallout of the coronavirus pandemic, in what would be “phase four” of the congressional response to the outbreak.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi told reporters in a conference call that the House’s “interest in infrastructure has always been bipartisan.” The plan builds upon a framework first introduced by Democrats in January, which would cost an estimated $760 billion over five years.
“It’s never been partisan and we don’t intend for it to be partisan now,” Pelosi said.
