• President Joe Biden will talk about his infrastructure package at 1:45 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time, two days after the Senate parliamentarian ruled that Democrats could use reconciliation to pass more legislation under the current budget resolution. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer’s office hasn’t said whether he will use reconciliation to pass Biden’s $2.3 trillion package, but the bill as proposed appears unlikely to win the 60-vote threshold in a Senate evenly divided along party lines. Biden this month is expected to unveil the second half of his infrastructure package focused on the caregiving and education priorities he outlined during his campaign, such as affordable child care, universal preschool and investments in elder care.
