  • Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Senate Republicans Block Start of Debate on Infrastructure Bill, 49-51” – below is their description.

    Senate Republicans blocked debate on a vast and still unfinished infrastructure plan, rejecting Majority Leader Chuck Schumer’s drive to forge ahead while negotiators from both parties struggle to complete details of the $579 billion package.

    The 49-51 vote fell well shy of the 60 needed to begin debate. Schumer switched his vote to “no” so he can call up the bill again. Schumer’s decision to force the early test vote Wednesday afternoon spurred a faster pace in protracted talks, which began almost a month ago when a group of 22 senators involved in negotiations announced agreement with

    President Joe Biden on the general outlines of the plan. Negotiations between senators and White House officials will continue Wednesday.
