Biden signs the bill that became June 19 as a federal holiday

The bipartisan infrastructure bill continues to gain momentum
A bilateral infrastructure agreement may continue to gather support on Thursday, a day after 10 senators approved a $ 1.2 trillion proposal framework.

Many details of the proposal have not been released, but it will not include “soft” infrastructure such as climate change and housing, as Biden requested in his original U.S. $ 2.25 trillion Employment Act. Democratic senators supporting the infrastructure framework briefed White House officials on Wednesday on the proposal. White House Deputy Press Secretary Andrew Bates called the briefing “productive and encouraging.”
After the previous confusion, California will loosen the rules of the pandemic at the construction site
California regulators are expected to approve revised rules on a workplace pandemic on Thursday that allow it fully vaccinated employees the same freedoms as when they are out of work. The revised regulations would be in line with general state guidelines that went into effect on Tuesday by repealing most of the rules on masks for people vaccinated against coronavirus. “If there is any ambiguity, if there is any concern about the execution, we will clarify it. I have a draft executive order ready immediately after voting for an explanation and providing greater security,” Governor Gavin told Newsom. The move comes after the plate has made a double twist backwards in recent weeks when it was first postponed, then rejected, then adopted, and then repealed proposed rules that would allow workers to give up masks only if every employee in the room had been fully vaccinated. The state effectively reopened on Tuesday, ending a multitude of 15-month restrictions to stop the pandemic.
