McConnell wants 'robust' debate on infrastructure bill

United States Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell called for a "robust" amendment process concerning the $1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill.

Full legislative procedure on the proposal should not be "choked off by an artificial timetable," the Republican leader stressed while addressing the Senate on Monday, hinting that GOP senators would not agree to an expedited approach to the infrastructure legislation.

The bill itself is "a good and important jumping-off point" for a "bipartisan [lawmaking] process out here on the [Senate] floor," according to McConnell.
