(WLAX/WEUX) – Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi says Democrats are close to finalizing an agreement on President Biden’s ‘social safety net’ proposals.
Getting the bill approved would allow for the bipartisan infrastructure bill to move forward.
“In terms of where we are, I’ve said already, with ninety percent of the bill agreed to and written, we just have some of the last decisions to be made. It is less than we had projected, to begin with, but it’s still bigger than anything we have ever done in terms of addressing the needs of America’s working families.” Said Pelosi.
Speaker Pelosi did express confidence the deal would be approved before President Biden leaves for Europe at the end of the week. Democrats in the senate are still working out some details and the final overall cost of the bill.
