A Biden administration team is heading to Capitol Hill Tuesday afternoon to discuss the latest Republican counter-offer on infrastructure, in a test of the potential for a bipartisan deal
The talks are a continuation of an effort that started last week with President Joe Biden hosting a meeting at the White House.
While the GOP initially proposed a $568 billion, five-year package that was well short of Biden’s $2.25 trillion American Jobs Plan, there are increasing signs the party will back a bigger bill. Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell has said he could envision a total of as much as $800 billion.
