Some quick math = 110+11+39+66+8+73= 307
1,300-307= 993

I wonder where the remaining 993 billion is going if not for transportation?

There are two plans bouncing around DC, one Bipartisan and the other one Partisan (Democrats).

The bill was split out between actual infrastructure and "social infrastructure" (aka stuff that would enable more people to hold more jobs and bring the economy back up to speed).
