The theory is that the White House has split these proposals in two because they expect to a lot of push back on Capitol Hill on the climate portion.Transportation Secretary Pete Buttgieg, the former Mayor of South Bend, had floated the possibility of a mileage tax to help fund the bill in the last few weeks, but he told CNN that will not be the case.“No, that is not apart of the conversation about this infrastructure bill,” he said. “But, you will be hearing more details in the coming days on how we envision being able to fund this.”Buttigieg would not elaborate on any of the details that are being discussed on how to pay for the bill, which is being asked for by the White House just weeks after a $3 trillion COVID relief bill passed Congress and was signed into law.Buttigieg said the infrastructure bill is much needed.“These are carefully thought through, responsible ideas, that ultimately are going to be a win for the economy and need to be compared to the unavoidability of the status quo,” Buttigieg said.He also reiterated that households making less than $400,000 a year will not see an extra tax to help pay for the bill.

CUNA wrote to Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) leadership to express concerns with July PACE guidance issued by the VA and by HUD on behalf of the Federal Housing Administration (FHA).“We urge you to suspend the applicability of the proposed FHA and VA PACE guidelines and issue the proposal for notice and comment so that lenders, borrowers, home improvement providers and others may be given the opportunity to comment and assist the departments in establishing policies that better protect consumers, lenders and taxpayers,” the letter reads.PACE varies from state to state, but generally allows homeowners to finance energy efficiency improvements for up to 20 yearswith payments made through assessments attached to the property. This allows the homeowners to benefit from the improvements immediately while spreading the cost out over time. continue reading »
