Democrats have promised that the US Senate will not disperse before voting on the infrastructure plan

At least two procedural votes on the bill are due to take place in the upper house on August 7, which will bring the end of the debate closer and move on to the final vote on this initiative.

The leader of the Democratic majority in the US Senate, Chuck Schumer (from the state of New York), promised that the upper house of the legislature would not disperse for the holidays until it votes on the country’s infrastructure development plan.

“We can take the easy path or the difficult one. In any case, the Senate will sit until we finish our work,” he said, speaking at a meeting of the chamber on Saturday. “How long this will last depends on my Republican colleagues,” the Democratic leader added.

At least two procedural votes on the bill are due to take place in the Senate on Saturday, which will bring the end of the debate closer and move on to the final vote on this initiative. Nevertheless, Democrats and Republicans cannot reach an agreement yet, and the debate continues. The total volume of the plan, designed for eight years, is about $1 trillion.
