Congressional negotiators and White House agree on infrastructure framework

A group of bipartisan senators Wednesday evening announced that they had agreed on an infrastructure framework with the White House.

The senators are meeting with President Joe Biden on Thursday to discuss the plan, but members of both parties said that his advisers had signed off Wednesday.

The plan has the same rough contours as an earlier framework released by the group, with around $579 billion in new spending and a long list of ways to pay for the package, according to Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.V.). It remains unclear whether those funding mechanisms will be enough to pay for the entire package, but senators emerging from a meeting with the White House were optimistic on Wednesday night.
