Biden and Congress Face Big Week for Government Agenda and Funding | National / World


[ad_1]

WASHINGTON (AP) – It’s a big week for President Joe Biden’s agenda, as Democratic leaders gently downsize its $ 3.5 trillion “Build Better” package to convince remaining lawmakers and work to quickly pass legislation to avoid a federal shutdown.

A vote scheduled for Monday on a related bipartisan $ 1 trillion infrastructure package is now postponed until Thursday, as part of ongoing negotiations. More immediately, the Senate has a test vote set for Monday to maintain government funding and avoid a federal debt default before Thursday’s year-end deadline. This package risks facing a blockade from Republican senators – while ensuring lawmakers will have to try again later in the week.
