Analysis | With infrastructure vote, Congress gives Biden long-needed jolt of good news


With this week’s election results in New Jersey and Virginia suggesting that voters are souring on Democrats, President Joe Biden badly needed a jolt of good news. And on Friday, he finally got a little.

The U.S. House of Representatives, controlled by his Democrats, passed a $1 trillion infrastructure bill to repair the nation’s airports, roads and bridges — three months after the Senate — sending the bill to Biden’s desk for signature into law.
