Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell joined Democrats in passing the $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill on Tuesday. 

The bill moves to the Democratic-led House for consideration.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has said she won't allow a vote on the $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill until the Democrats' $3.5 trillion filibuster-proof reconciliation bill passes.

Vice President Kamala Harris announced on the Senate floor that the bill passed 69-30.
