U.S. Democratic Senator Manchin Backs ‘targeted’ Infrastructure Bill

Democratic Senator Joe Manchin on Sunday said he would support passing a smaller, targeted infrastructure bill with bipartisan support first before weighing other potential upgrades in a separate follow-up bill.

“More targeted,” Manchin, a key vote in the closely divided Senate, said in an interview with CNN’s “State of the Union” program, referring to a bill that would incorporate internet broadband, roads and other traditional infrastructure needs. Asked if he would back another bill with other related spending through a process called reconciliation, Manchin said “no.”
