Pelosi Sets Thursday For Vote On $1T Infrastructure Bill


The House begins debate Monday on President Biden's $1 trillion infrastructure bill with Speaker Nancy Pelosi announcing a final vote for Thursday. The vote hit a snag in recent days as some moderate Democrats said they won't back the legislation until there's a smaller price tag for the separate $3.5 trillion reconciliation package that includes social and climate change proposals. Pelosi told ABC's George Stephanopoulos, she's confident it's all going to work out. "I'm never bringing a bill to the floor that doesn't have the votes." Besides trying to finish work on both bills, lawmakers also face the possibility of a government shutdown this week. Congress must pass an appropriations bill by Thursday, or government funding will lapse, triggering a shutdown.
