Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer announced the agreement after emerging from a late-night meeting at the US Capitol, flanked by Budget Chairman Bernie Sanders of Vermont and others on the committee.
“The budget resolution with instructions will be $ 3.5 兆. You add that to the $ 600 billion bipartisan plan, you get to $ 4.1 (兆), which is very, very close to what President Biden asked us for,” 舒默说. “Every major program that President (乔) Biden has asked us for is funded in a robust way.”
Schumer told reporters that the legislation will eventually have the 50 votes it needs to pass the Senate.
