Schumer announces bipartisan group has finalized legislative text on infrastructure bill

“The bipartisan group of senators has finished writing the text of the infrastructure bill,” the New York Democrat said, “And in a moment I’ll take the procedural steps to make their legislative language the base of the bill on the floor.”

Now that the text is complete, Schumer said he will be submitting it as the substitute amendment, making it the base of the bipartisan infrastructure bill. This allows the Senate to begin on what could be a days-long amendment process. Schumer said on the floor that a vote on final passage could happen “in a matter of days.”

This is a breaking story and will be updated.
