Biden meets Manchin, Sinema for infrastructure talks

United States President Joe Biden held separate meetings with Democratic Senators Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema in an effort to reach an agreement on his infrastructure plan. Recently, a version of the package worth $1.2 trillion has been gaining momentum and attracting bipartian support, as it does not envisage raising taxes.

The White House stated Biden also discussed voting rights with Manchin, after the senator expressed opposition to the bill proposed by his party. Biden stated that he is "encouraged by what has taken shape but that he still has questions about the policy as well as the means for financing the bipartisan group's proposal."
