The Democratic-controlled U.S. House of Representatives are discussing whether to vote on Friday on a roughly $1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill to update America's roads, bridges and broadband networks, passed by the Senate in August.

The legislation is one of President Joe Biden's top domestic priorities and includes $550 billion in new spending, while the rest of the $1 trillion is previously approved funding.
