He said Republican concerns over the size of Biden’s proposal focus on whether the funds are to be borrowed, or raised through tax increases. He said the Republican caucus in Congress would also like to see a larger ratio of the funding devoted to what he termed traditional infrastructure, such as roads and bridges. He said the congresswoman will also urge a larger commitment of funds for broadband expansion in rural areas.
