Infrastructure Sweetheart Deal for Manchin's Wife

In addition to funding for HBCUs, carbon emissions reduction and “poll equity,” the bipartisan infrastructure bill contains a number of programs that will benefit the wife of Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV), whose vote was heavily courted in the 50-50 split Senate. The bill doubles funding of a committee headed up by Mrs. Manchin.
