The bill is S. 4116

Infrastructure bill

The House on July 1, 2020, passed an amended version of an infrastructure bill—H.R. 2, the “Moving Forward Act”—by a vote of 233-188 (most House Democrats voted for the bill, while most House Republicans voted against the bill).

The bill includes a host of tax provisions.   


  • Read House Report 116-438 as reported by the House Rules Committee (which includes a summary of an amendment considered as adopted)
  • Read House floor activities for the July 1 legislative day for amendments adopted on the House floor.
  • Read a Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT) table of estimated revenue effects of the revenue provisions contained in Division M of H.R. 2, including the Manager’s Amendment: JCX-18-20
  • Read TaxNewsFlash for background

What’s next?

The Senate has not scheduled action on H.R. 2.  As a reminder, to become law, identical legislation must pass both the House and the Senate and be signed by the president.
