The Build Back Better reconciliation bill has passed the House Judiciary Committee without any amendments. The plan contains a pathway to green card status for recipients of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and Temporary Protected Status (TPS), farmworkers, and essential workers. It is unclear whether the bill will be passed into law, and if so, whether it will change from its current form.
The Build Back Better bill calls for $3.5 trillion in investments in childcare, education, paid leave, healthcare, clean energy, and other programs. The next step in the bill’s development is a House floor vote, followed by a Senate vote.
