President Joe Biden’s bipartisan $1.2 trillion infrastructure plan failed a Senate test vote Wednesday but new efforts are expected as early as Monday. Infrastructure is a key bipartisan objective, as both Biden and Donald Trump sought trillion-dollar plans during the 2020 campaign.

Meanwhile, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer has been working to pass the bipartisan plan and the Democrats' reconciliation package that is worth $3.5 trillion that aims to expand Medicare, address childcare, healthcare, and combat climate change. 

“My colleagues on both sides should be assured: as majority leader, I have every intention of passing both major infrastructure packages--the bipartisan infrastructure framework and a budget resolution with reconciliation instructions before we leave for the August recess,” Schumer said

The two bills remain Biden’s top legislative priority as he considers them to be vital in boosting the country’s economy. Despite the minor setbacks, Biden still believes the bipartisan bill will pass the Senate.

“It’s a good thing, and I think we are going to get it done,” Biden said during a CNN town hall. 

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has said she will not let either bill come to a vote in the House unless they both pass the Senate.

With a deadlocked Senate a minimum of 10 Republicans will be needed to approve the bill in order for it to pass.

Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, who had previously tried to delay the vote over concerns of how the bill will be paid for says “we’ll be ready to go” with the bipartisan plan on Monday.
