WASHINGTON – Arizona lawmakers split on party lines late Friday night as the House voted 228-206 to pass a $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill, giving final passage to a centerpiece of the Biden administration's agenda.

All four Arizona Republicans voted against and all five Arizona Democrats voted for the bill, which has already passed the Senate and now goes to the president for his signature.

"For far too long, Congress has agreed that infrastructure is an American priority but has let political gridlock get in the way of concrete action," said Rep. Tom O'Halleran, D-Sedona, in a statement after the vote. "I was proud to vote to pass this much-needed package today."
