Bipartisan Senate group reaches infrastructure deal without tax hikes — but leaders still need to sign off

Source: CNBC

“Senators from both parties have reached an infrastructure deal they hope to sell as a plan that can get through Congress with bipartisan support. A group of 10 Democrats and Republicans struck what they called a ‘realistic, compromise framework to modernize our nation’s infrastructure and energy technologies,’ according to a joint statement released Thursday by Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, D-Ariz. The plan ‘would be fully paid for and not include tax increases,’ the senators added. … While the 10 lawmakers agreed to a deal, they still face a challenge in trying to win support from the White House and congressional leaders to make their proposal law.” (06/10/21)
