Senate majority leader Schumer
- Is ready to consider amendments to infrastructure bill
- Warns against any artificial timetable for consideration up bipartisan infrastructure bill
- Believes the draft text provides a good jumping off point
The Senate introduced a bipartisan infrastructure bill on Sunday with hopes to pass the measure as soon as this week.
Yesterday Schumer said “Given how bipartisan the bill is, and how much work has already been put in to get the details right, I believe the Senate can quickly process relevant amendments and pass this bill in a matter of days”
Both of those plans would then pass to the House of Representatives who is not scheduled to return to Washington until September 20.
