US Senate Holds Rare Saturday Session on $1 Trim Bill

6

the Senate of USA, in a rare Saturday session, worked on a bill that would spend 1 trillion dollars on roads, railways, and other infrastructure, while lawmakers from both parties sought to promote the president’s top legislative priority. Joe Biden.

The ambitious plan has the support of both Democrats and Republicans and has already overcome two obstacles by wide margins in the divided Senate.

But so far, no lawmaker has seen the final text of the bill, which includes about $550 billion in new spending and was still being drafted on Saturday. Previous votes were in favor of a bill that will be added to the actual legislation once it is completed.

“Once the bipartisan group completes the legislative text, I will offer it as a surrogate amendment,” Democrat Chuck Schumer said on Saturday.

“The Senate will move forward on both infrastructure tracks before the August recess begins. The longer it takes to finish, the longer we’ll be here. But let’s get the job done.”
