Several Senate Republicans have put forward a $568 billion infrastructure proposal which would cost far less than President Biden's whopping $2.3 trillion American Jobs Plan.

The GOP proposal calls for spending on roads, bridges, public transit, airports, broadband and more.

"So, we take the part of the president's plan that most Americans agree is real, hard infrastructure, we give it our touch, and we think we have a very good number here," Sen. Wicker of Mississippi said during a press conference in which lawmakers discussed the proposal.
