Not too shabby!

Measure has White House support. Portman, Sinema say all significant disagreements have been resolved around roughly $1 trillion package.

(WaPo) Senate Democrats and Republicans banded together on Wednesday to advance a roughly $1 trillion proposal to improve the countryís aging infrastructure, overcoming months of political deadlock on one of President Bidenís signature economic policy priorities.

The day of breakthroughs began with news of a deal, as a bipartisan bloc of 10 negotiators coalesced around a package to upgrade the nationís roads, bridges, pipes, ports and Internet connections. The announcement from some of the groupís leaders, including Sens. Rob Portman (R-Ohio) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.), capped off a series of frenetic talks that nearly collapsed amid behind-the-scenes battles about the new spending and how to pay for it.

Senate takes up $1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure deal, signaling a breakthrough for a top Biden priority.

(NY Times) The Senate voted on Wednesday to take up a bipartisan $1 trillion infrastructure deal, as Republicans joined Democrats to pave the way for action on a crucial piece of President Bidenís agenda.

The 67-to-32 vote, which included the support of 17 Republicans, came just hours after senators in both parties and the White House reached a long-sought compromise on the bill, which would provide about $550 billion in new federal money for roads, bridges, rail lines, transit projects, water systems and other physical infrastructure programs.

While a final Senate vote on the legislation is days away, the test vote on Wednesday marked a major victory for Mr. Biden, who has pressed for the plan for months, and a validation of his faith that a bipartisan breakthrough was possible even in a polarized Washington.
