NATSO Analysis: Infrastructure State of Play

The Senate recently approved both the bipartisan infrastructure bill and the FY2022 budget resolution.  The infrastructure bill includes, among other things, a five-year reauthorization of highway programs, as well as $7.5 billion for alternative fuel infrastructure grants, the bulk of which are likely to go to electric vehicle (EV) charging stations. The budget resolution unlocks a process whereby Democrats can pass an up to $3.5 trillion bill filled with Democratic priorities that can pass the Senate with a simple majority vote.  NATSO expects Congress this year to approve both the bipartisan infrastructure bill as well as a separate reconciliation bill that includes Democratic social welfare priorities as well as corporate and individual tax hikes and various "green" energy tax incentives.
