WASHINGTON (REUTERS) – United States senators on Sunday (Aug 1) finalised details of a sweeping US$1 trillion (S$1.35 trillion) plan to invest in roads, bridges, ports, high-speed Internet and other infrastructure, with some predicting passage of the bipartisan legislation later this week.

The massive infrastructure package, a goal that has eluded Congress for years, is a top legislative priority for US President Joe Biden, who has billed it as the largest such investment in a century.

Senators said the 2,702-page bill included US$550 billion in new spending over five years for items such as roads, rail, electric vehicle charging stations and replacing lead water pipes on top of US$450 billion in previously approved funds.
