Picture - This week: Democrats aim to unlock Biden economic, infrastructure package

Democrats are trying to hit the gas on

’s two-part spending package, as they look to close the door on weeks of public haggling. 

After missing a self-imposed deadline to get an agreement on a framework for a sweeping social spending bill by the end of last week, Democratic leadership, the White House and key lawmakers negotiated throughout the weekend. 

Democrats say they are close to an agreement on the spending bill that would cover ground on a slew of policies including childcare, education, healthcare, housing and climate change.

That, Democratic leadership hopes, could also let the House vote this week on a Senate-passed roughly $1 trillion infrastructure bill.

“That's the plan,” House Speaker

(D-Calif.) said during a CNN “State of the Union” interview, asked about the possibility of a deal on the spending bill and a vote on the separate infrastructure legislation in the next week.
