    OpenCongress Bill Summary

    • A small piece of the larger jobs bill proposed by President Obama, S.1660, this bill would invest $50 billion in infrastructure repair, plus another $10 billion in an infrastructure bank, which would provide loans for private, revenue-generating infrastructure projects. The spending would be offset with a 0.5% surtax on all income earned above $1 million.
