- After centrists threatened to derail Democrats’ economic agenda by pushing for swift approval of the Senate-passed infrastructure plan, party leaders pledged to vote on it by Sept. 27.
- The House Rules Committee agreed to a process that would prohibit any amendments from being considered for the infrastructure bill.
Despite all the controversy, the white house is all set to vote on the Infrastructure Bill by Sept,27. As of now, there won’t be any amendments to the crypto tax provisions.
Notwithstanding the initial pushback from moderate Democrats, Pelosi’s commitment of passing the bill before Sept.27 persuaded the opposition voters. Pelosi stated:
“I am committing to pass the bipartisan infrastructure bill by September 27. I do so with a commitment to rally House Democratic support for its passage.”
The house also passed a measure approving a $3.5 trillion budget blueprint. The House closed the door to infrastructure bill changes despite calls from Democrats and Republicans to cut back the cryptocurrency tax proposal that the Senate passed as part of the legislation earlier this month.
In late July, The Bipartisan infrastructure deal in the United States Senate saw lawmakers propose expanded crypto taxes to raise an additional $28 billion revenue.
