Representative Rosa DeLauro (D-CT) introduced the Rebuild America Act, H.R. 5727, on May 10. The bill would establish a Rebuild America Trust Fund. This Trust Fund would, among many uses, provide an additional $2 billion to the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program in FY13 and fY14, and an additional $1 billion in each of fiscal years 2015 through 2021. The bill would require that the funds be used to “supplement not supplant” existing CDBG funding. The bill would also require that these additional CDBG funds be used for capital projects. The bill would also raise the federal minimum wage to $9.80 and index regular minimum wage increases to inflation. The sources of funding for the Rebuild America Trust Fund are not identified in the bill. The bill is similar to S. 2252, Rebuild America Act legislation introduced by Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA) on March 29. Given the very broad scope of H.R. 5727, it was referred to the House committees on Education and the Workforce, Energy and Commerce, Agriculture, Transportation and Infrastructure, Financial Services, Science, Space, and Technology, Small Business, the Judiciary, Rules, Oversight and Government Reform, and House Administration.
