WASHINGTON — Senators worked through the weekend to prepare the text of an infrastructure package for a vote this week after House members left for their August recess without advancing an extension of the eviction moratorium. The $550 infrastructure deal, which includes many of President Joe Biden's priorities, would inject a windfall of money into a number of transportation projects that have long enjoyed support from both parties. The 2,702-page bill includes measures aimed at reforming Amtrak, “revolutionizing” a transportation grant program and enhancing the electrical grid. Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., said on CNN's "State of the Union": “So many people have given up on the Senate. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., said Sunday that House members are on a 24-hour call-back notice in anticipation of the infrastructure bill's passing in the Senate.

REUTERS/StringerWASHINGTON, Aug 1 (Reuters) - U.S. President Joe Biden's administration will launch a new program to resettle certain Afghans as refugees in the United States, an administration official and two knowledgeable sources said on Sunday. The U.S. State Department was expected to announce the setting-up of the so-called Priority Two refugee program on Monday, the three sources said, speaking on condition of anonymity. The administration official said the new refugee program would cover Afghans who worked for U.S.-funded projects and for U.S.-based non-government bodies and media outlets. The administration official said the new program for Afghans would differ from a Prority Two refugee program for Iraqis that has been indefinitely suspended while U.S. officials pursue a sweeping fraud investigation. The referral requirement is a key difference between the new Afghan program and the Iraqi program, which allows Iraqis to apply directly without a referral, the official said.

REUTERS/Elizabeth Frantz/File PhotoWASHINGTON, Aug 1 (Reuters) - U.S. senators are expected to move forward on Sunday on a sweeping $1 trillion package for roads, rail lines and other infrastructure, with text of a bill due to be delivered. The bipartisan group working on the legislative text said it would be ready on Sunday, U.S. Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer said on the Senate floor on Saturday night.

Democrats have included those measures in a separate $3.5 trillion package, which they will seek to pass without Republican support.

Federal unemployment benefits are set to expire in a little over a month; 26 states ended them early. She's in South Carolina, where federal benefits ended on June 27. That's when the extension — and expansion — of federal benefits from President Joe Biden's American Rescue Plan is set to expire. "But nobody's going to extend unemployment benefits just because there's a Delta variant." He said he would be "shocked" if unemployment benefits got extended in the state, and that it could complicate the labor shortage even further.

The electricity infrastructure investment gap is estimated to be $208 billion through the end of the decade, according to the American Society of Civil Engineers. The need to make power infrastructure across the country more resilient has been a focus of President Joe Biden's spending proposals. Risk mitigation measuresOther infrastructure safety upgrades include replacing wooden poles with those made from steel, as well as coating wires to reduce fire risk. But as things intensify with the wildfire risk we've stepped up our wildfire mitigation strategy," he said. Power infrastructure is ubiquitous, and implementing these changes is costly.

Senators and staff have been laboring behind the scenes for days to write what is certain to be a massive piece of legislation. To prod the work along, Schumer kept senators in a weekend session, encouraging the authors of a bipartisan infrastructure plan to finish drafting the bill so that senators can begin offering amendments. Schumer wants the voting to be wrapped up before senators break for their August recess. "We may need the weekend, we may vote on several amendments, but with the cooperation of our Republican colleagues, I believe we can finish the bipartisan infrastructure bill in a matter of days," Schumer said Friday night. Cornyn said he expects Schumer to allow all senators to have a chance to shape the bill and allow for amendments from members of both parties.

AOC is joining progressives criticizing the notion that voter suppression can be out-organized. Ocasio-Cortez was responding to a New York Times report published July 23 which detailed the tension between the Biden White House and civil rights activists over voting rights issues. The Times reported that in "private calls" with activists, White House officials and close allies of the president have expressed confidence that it is possible to 'out-organize voter suppression.'" Ocasio-Cortez previously tweeted that "communities cannot 'out-organize' voter suppression when those they organize to elect won't protect the vote.& Even if they DO out-organize, the ground is being set to overturn results. Senate Democrats are now drawing up a revised, more narrowly-tailored version of the bill focused on voting rights.

WASHINGTON — U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said on Friday there will be no nationwide mandate for Americans to get a Covid-19 vaccine, clarifying comments she made earlier during a televised interview. I was referring to mandates by private institutions and portions of the federal government," Walensky wrote in a Twitter post. "There will be no federal mandate." Earlier on Friday, when asked by a Fox News Channel interviewer, "Are you for mandating a vaccine on a federal level," Walensky said: "That's something that I think the administration is looking into." The United States is experiencing rising numbers of Covid-19 cases, especially in areas with lower rates of vaccination.

The Senate ultimately voted 66-28 to take up the bill, with 16 Republicans joining all 48 Democrats and two independents in support. Supporters predicted it will ultimately pass the Senate and House of Representatives, eventually reaching Biden's desk for him to sign it into law. Progressive members of the House Democratic caucus have already suggested the $1 trillion package is inadequate, and the Senate could likewise impose changes that could complicate its chances of becoming law. But supporters, including Democratic Senate Leader Chuck Schumer and Republican Senate Leader Mitch McConnell, have been optimistic about its prospects. Schumer said he plans to pass both the bipartisan infrastructure bill and the Democratic climate and social spending bill before senators take their summer break, which was supposed to start in the second week of August.

Trump raised $56 million online in the first half of 2021, more than any other Republican. A large chunk of the money came from recurring payments, which the party has reportedly halted. The former president raised more money than any other Republican through WinRed, the GOP's fundraising platform that launched in 2019 to counter ActBlue, the highly successful Democratic platform, according to federal records. A Times investigation from April revealed how the program caused a series of fraud complaints and refund requests, due to many respondents unintentionally signing up for recurring payments. The former president also raised more than $21 million which was funneled into two political action committees (PACs) that he oversees.

The U.S. Senate in a rare Saturday session worked on a bill that would spend $1 trillion on roads, rail lines and other infrastructure, as lawmakers from both parties sought to advance President Joe Biden's top legislative priority. The Senate is going to move forward on both tracks of infrastructure before the beginning of the August recess. After passing the $1 trillion bill, Schumer aims to push forward on a sweeping $3.5 trillion package that focuses on climate change and home care for the elderly and children.

Then-President Donald Trump pressed top Justice Department officials in a late December phone call to declare the election he lost “corrupt,” and “leave the rest” to him and Republican allies in Congress, according to contemporaneous, handwritten notes taken by officials on the call. Trump pressured top Justice Department officials on a Dec. 27 phone call with then-Deputy Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen and his second-in-command, Richard Donoghue, part of an effort to reverse Joe Biden's win. Trump added: "We have an obligation to tell people that this was an illegal, corrupt election," according to Donoghue's notes. The Justice Department provided the notes to Maloney's committee, which is probing the Trump administration's efforts to overturn last fall's election. Last month, the House Oversight Committee released emails provided to it by the Justice Department detailing Trump's repeated efforts to reverse his loss.

"Unlike with other variants, vaccinated people infected with Delta can transmit the virus," CDC Director Rochelle Walensky said in a statement released alongside the new report. Delta was responsible for at least 90% of the cases in this outbreak, according to viral sequencing. The outbreak is noteworthy, as Massachusetts is a state with a relatively high vaccination rate, with nearly three-quarters of adults fully vaccinated.
