WH: 'Ball in Republican's court' on infrastructure bill

White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki said during the press briefing on Monday that the "ball is in Republican's court" in regards to the infrastructure bill American Jobs Plan after the United States President Joe Biden released a "counteroffer" to their proposal on the legislation.

"Our reasonable counterproposal cut $550 billion from the President's original proposal. [...] The last counteroffer that came from the Republicans just came up by $50 billion. So, our concessions went ten times as far as theirs. So, the ball is in their court," Psaki said.

Psaki also noted that only some of the funding cuts will be introduced in other bills.
