S.D. delegation react to the infrastructure bill signed by President Biden

WASHINGTON, D.C.(WNAX)- President Biden signed the one point two trillion-dollar infrastructure bill Monday.

The bill was cut down significantly as it made its way through Congress.

South Dakota will get about one point nine billion dollars from the bill. Senator John Thune was a “no” vote on the bill.

Thune says he voted no because of how the bill is financed.

Thune says most Members of Congress support infrastructure improvements.

South Dakota Congressman Dusty Johnson voted “no” on the package.

Johnson says it may cripple the ability of Congress to pass infrastructure bill in the future.

Johnson says he is hearing from South Dakotans about the spending.

Much of the federal spending will be spread out over the next five to ten years.
