Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, after voting for the stopgap transportation funding, told reporters that infrastructure will come to the floor “when we have the votes.”
“We’re gonna deliver,” Hoyer added.
Majority Whip Jim Clyburn echoed this, saying he’s “not worried about” getting infrastructure done by Dec. 3 when the new highway funding extension will expire.
When asked if they would vote on infrastructure, Clyburn said it was “above my pay grade.”
“Steny decides when it comes to the floor, Nancy decides what comes to the floor, so you have to talk to one of them,” he said. “I have no idea, I’ll be ready to do my job when it gets to the floor.”
