A group of Senate negotiators said they had reached a final deal on a $1.2 trillion infrastructure package that could be on the floor for a vote as soon as Wednesday night.
“We now have an agreement on the major issues,” Sen. Rob Portman, an Ohio Republican, told reporters in the Capitol. “We are prepared to move forward.”
The article goes on to state the following:
Republicans said Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, a New York Democrat, may bring up the measure for a key test vote as soon as Wednesday night.
Schumer signaled that he plans to keep the Senate in session over the weekend to finish the infrastructure bill. He also declared that the bill, as well as the Senate’s $3.5 trillion budget resolution, need to pass prior to August recess, which is scheduled to begin in less than two weeks.
According to the report, the package is expected to cost $1.2 trillion over eight years, and offers more than $579 billion in new spending.
Sen. Susan Collins said that $65 billion is expected to be allocated for broadband, and Sen. Bill Cassidy stated that $47 billion for flooding and coastal resiliency.
“We are still finalizing the details, but we have reached agreement on the major issues,” Collins said. “I am delighted that we’ve been able to come together as a bipartisan group.”
Senate Democrats are planning to hold a special caucus meeting at 1pm Wednesday to learn more about the bill.
The bill needs 60 votes to advance in the Senate.

Former President Donald Trump issued multiple statements urging Republicans not to pass the “so-called bipartisan infrastructure bill.”
“Republicans, don’t let the Radical Left play you for weak fools and losers,” Trump demanded, urging the party to delay passing infrastructure until after the 2022 midterms.
