Schumer Says Senate to Vote Early in 2022 on Build Back Better


December 20, 2021 6:27 am

The Senate will consider the Build Back Better Act “very early in the new year so that every Member of this body has the opportunity to make their position known on the Senate floor,” Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer writes in letter.

  • “We are going to vote on a revised version of the House-passed Build Back Better Act – and we will keep voting on it until we get something done”
  • If Senate Republicans “continue to abuse the filibuster and prevent the body from considering this bill, the Senate will then consider changes to any rules which prevent us from debating and reaching final conclusion on important legislation”
