Tax Committee Holds Hearing Ahead of Infrastructure Proposal Release

The House’s tax committee is scheduled to consider the options to pay for an infrastructure package on Jan. 29 at 10:30 a.m. The hearing coincides with the anticipated release of a topline framework for infrastructure funding from House Democrats. The draft is expected to include provisions on surface transportation reauthorization, known as the highway bill. The current surface transportation authorization expires in September and new sources of funding will likely need to be included in whatever reauthorization package emerges. The Senate Environment and Public Works Committee passed a reauthorization package in 2019, S.2302, however, several other Senate and House committees will need to weigh-in to the process, as they share jurisdiction over the associated policy.
