Pelosi, Schumer 'excited' about infrastructure deal prospect

United States House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said they are "very excited about the prospect of a bipartisan agreement" on infrastructure. A group of lawmakers announced earlier in the day they agreed on a framework for a $1.2 trillion deal.

However, the senior Democrats did not come out in support of the plan. "We’ll let them announce it first. Let’s see it. But we support the concepts we’ve heard about it," Schumer explained. The pair stated they expect a vote on both the infrastructure bill and the reconciliation bill in July.
