    Build Back Better – Act II in 2022?

    After Senate Democrats failed to achieve consensus on the Build Back Better bill (BBB) by the end of 2021, what are its prospects for passage in 2022?

    As the Senate resumes work in January, the BBB has been sent to the back burner for at least a few weeks, while the upper chamber prioritizes voting rights legislation.

    Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., told members he expects some version of the BBB to pass eventually. Considering Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., rejected the $1.7 trillion House-passed package, it is widely accepted the bill will require a major rewrite before coming up for a vote. Schumer, however, remains adamant it will all work out in the end.
