WASHINGTON (April 23, 2021) — The Republican Party has drafted an alternate infrastructure plan to the one proposed by President Biden. This proposal would cut infrastructure spending by up to 75% — $568 billion over 5 years as opposed to Biden's $2.3 trillion American Jobs Plan. 

The party plans to pay for the bill by increasing user fees for electric and hybrid vehicle owners that don't pay as much or any gas tax, repurposing unspent money from COVID-relief legislation and allowing state funding matches for infrastructure with the additional COVID-relief funding the states received.
