Late Friday night the House of Representatives finally passed a $1 trillion infrastructure package after months fighting. The bill passed the Senate in August, but it was held up in the House as many progressive democrats wanted to pass a social spending bill alongside the infrastructure package. Biden says he will sign the bill "soon."

Leaders in Colorado hailed the passage of the bill. Governor Polis called the bill a "win" for the state, and Colorado is expected to receive close to $4 billion for highway programs, and $225 million for bridge replacements and repairs.
