Romney: Bipartisan group has tentative infrastructure deal
|Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah), who is negotiating with a bipartisan group of 10 senators, says he and his colleagues have reached a tentative deal on the size of an infrastructure package and how to pay for it.
The emerging deal would spend only a fraction of the $4.1 trillion investment President Biden has called for and would not raise taxes, which could make it a tough sell within the broader Senate Democratic caucus.
And other members of the bipartisan group cautioned Thursday that the tentative deal still needs to be presented to the Senate Republican conference and the White House to see if there’s broader buy-in.
