What K Street Is Saying About the Infrastructure Deal
Public Policy & Regulation Group Leader Rich Gold was quoted in POLITICO Influence reacting to the news that the White House and a bipartisan group of senators had agreed on the framework for an infrastructure deal. Although K Street welcomed the news, the next step of adding legislative text to that framework still looms large, and thin margins in Congress could complicate the process. Mr. Gold, however, expressed optimism that a bill will be passed.
"It's kind of like Christmas," he remarked. "...That's not to say that there aren't potholes in the process where this could fall in and end up not coming back. But I think, suffice to say, the speaker is not going to end up bringing down the Biden presidency."
