Infrastructure legislation is expected to be the next big policy priority for the administration now that Biden has signed the $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief relief bill into law. 

Buttigieg on Monday would not commit to an infrastructure proposal being unveiled this month, saying the timing would be left up to Biden.

Ill let the president lead on the legislative priorities and sequencing but as youve seen from the public impatience and the congressional interest, these conversations are very much live, he said.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Bipartisan Policy Center and other groups in Washington have called for Congress to pass an infrastructure package by the Fourth of July.
