Pelosi said in August that he was “committed to passing the Bilateral Infrastructure Bill by September 2nd.” As that day drew to a close, the House Speaker removed the vote on Thursday, September 30, over the debate that began Monday afternoon over the bill.
Biden’s comments showed a lack of confidence that the timeline had been set in stone, but he was optimistic that the infrastructure bill, a larger spending package and an ongoing solution to fund the government – and deferment of the debt limit – would pass in the near future.
