• Eleven Republicans working on a bipartisan infrastructure bill told Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer that they would vote to begin debate on Monday, after Wednesday’s 49 to 51 vote fell short of the 60 votes Democrats needed to proceed. Schumer (D., N.Y.) switched his vote to no in a procedural move that gives him the option to bring up the bill again. The bipartisan group of 22 senators said in a statement that “We have made significant progress and are close to a final agreement,” adding, “We will continue working hard to ensure we get this critical legislation right—and are optimistic that we will finalize, and be prepared to advance, this historic bipartisan proposal to strengthen America’s infrastructure and create good-paying jobs in the coming days,” The Wall Street Journal reported.
