The second measure would be passed through a Senate maneuver called reconciliation here, which would allow it to take effect without Republican votes. “I expect that in the coming months this summer, before the fiscal year is over, that we will have voted on this (bipartisan) bill - the infrastructure bill - as well as voted on the budget resolution,” Biden told reporters at the White House. “It almost makes your head spin.”McConnell, Pelosi and Schumer have not been directly involved with the bipartisan infrastructure talks.

Manchin signaled he could support a party-line infrastructure bill after striking a possible deal with Republicans. He also supports unwinding the Trump tax cuts, which he called "unfair." Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia on Tuesday said he was open to backing a party-line infrastructure bill. The influential Democratic centrist told NBC News that "human infrastructure" should constitute a follow-up package. Manchin also said he believed "adjustments" need to be made to the 2017 Republican tax law, which slashed corporate taxes.

Senate Republicans increasingly believe striking an infrastructure deal with Biden could derail some of his tax hikes. Bipartisan negotiations on a roughly $1 trillion infrastructure package are poised to stretch into next week as lawmakers struggle to resolve key disagreements on how to finance it. "I think if we can agree on an infrastructure package that's paid for, we should," Sen. John Cornyn of Texas told Insider. Some have already expressed unease with Biden's tax hikes on the rich to finance new programs — which could potentially cut the scope of a follow-up package. Mark Warner of Virginia and Bob Menendez favor scaling back Biden's tax increase on capital gains, Politico reported.

Thune has proposed granting the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) the power to grant exemptions for tens of thousands of self-driving vehicles per manufacturer from safety standards written with human drivers in mind. The surface bill, which would boost funding for Amtrak and other transportation needs, was approved by the committee on a 25-3 vote. The senator argued autonomous vehicles could help eliminate numerous deaths due to human error like distracted or impaired drivers. Thune said that the "Teamsters and trial lawyers" are opposed to self-driving legislation and they "seem to own lock, stock and barrel the Democrats on this committee." Reuters reported in May that Waymo and rival Cruise, a unit of General Motors, have applied for permits to start charging for rides and delivery using autonomous vehicles in San Francisco.

A bipartisan framework is likely to constrain its focus to physical infrastructure. A new poll from Monmouth University released Wednesday indicated that roughly two-thirds of the public backed Biden's sweeping infrastructure plans. Another recent poll from Morning Consult demonstrated that Biden's infrastructure plans have a slight edge over the Republicans' proposal — 52% compared to 48%, respectively. Democrats are pushing for a much more expansive infrastructure spending that crosses into nearly every sector of the economy. The rival views on what makes up infrastructure and how to pay for it derailed an earlier set of talks between Biden and Senate Republicans.

He said bipartisan talks would continue to try to find a deal with Republicans. The two most conservative Democrats haven't said how they would vote, but they notably kept the door open to Schumer's two-track approach. Top Senate Republicans split over whether Democrats' pursuit of a party-line bill would damage prospects of a bipartisan deal. "That sends a signal that he really doesn't want to do a bipartisan bill. Senate Minority Whip John Thune, R-S.D., said that if Republicans agree to a bipartisan deal, they could make it tougher for Democrats to secure the votes for a separate party-line bill.

It was another warning sign that Silicon Valley's political allies may be dwindling even at a time of deep partisan divisions in Washington — at least when the issue is how big tech companies have become. "There's more agreement on competition," said Justin Brookman, a former FTC policy director who's now director of consumer privacy and technology policy for Consumer Reports. "Certainly many Republicans are motivated by concerns that liberal tech companies are discriminating against conservative voices," he said in an email. "So maybe the parties have different motivations, but many on both sides seem to agree that the tech companies need to be reined in more." NetChoice, a trade group whose members include large tech companies such as Amazon, said it was disheartened by the vote in her favor.

The US Air Force has indicated that South Dakota's Ellsworth Air Force Base will be the first home for the service's new bomber. The Air Force previously said Ellsworth was the preferred location for the first operational B-21 as well as the formal B-21 training unit. The United States Air Force announced this month that Ellsworth Air Force Base (AFB), South Dakota, will be home to the next-generation nuclear bomber. The Air Force will likely acquire more than 100 of the stealth bombers, which are capable of launching nuclear strikes around the world. The Air Force will incrementally retire existing B-1 Lancers as well as B-2 Spirits when a sufficient number of B-21s are delivered.

Just one day of disruption can impact the meat supply chain. A cyberattack on the largest meat supplier in the world came at a potentially catastrophic time for the meat supply chain. The attack highlights the delicate nature of the meat supply chain in the US. Meat prices are already up compared to 2020, with Morning Brew reporting that pork prices were up 4.8% and beef prices were up 3.3% in April. Last year highlighted the tenuous nature of the supply chain, and how much it depends on a few major players.

WASHINGTON — Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, ripped her colleagues who are opposing a bill to investigate Jan. 6 Capitol riot, accusing her party of bending to electoral political concerns while "there's more to be learned." Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has urged Republicans to vote against the commission, calling it a "purely political exercise." This was not a protest that was mild," Murkowski said, referring to comments by Republicans in the House who've downplayed the riot. Murkowski said she felt Congress owed it to the scores Capitol Police officers who were injured in the assault to act. The pair were part of a group that spent the day lobbying Republican senators to vote in favor of the commission.

Senate Republicans are unifying against the January 6 commission legislation. The bill closely follows the bipartisan language and structure from the law creating the 9/11 commission. One of the complaints issued by GOP senators is that the legislation wouldn't be bipartisan — like the previously established September 11 Commission. "I encourage all members, Republicans and Democrats alike, to put down their swords for once, just for once, and support this bill," he added. Former President Donald Trump told GOP members to squash it.

Two Senate Democrats issued a joint statement Tuesday pleading with Senate Republicans to "work with us" on establishing a commission to investigate the storming of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. “We implore our Senate Republican colleagues to work with us to find a path forward on a commission to examine the events of January 6th,” Sens. The entreaty did not contain any overt threat that the pair would change their stance on filibuster reform, but does show their frustration over the resistance to date against the commission from Senate Republicans. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., announced his opposition to the legislation for a 9/11-style commission last week, calling it a "slanted and unbalanced proposal." 2 Republican in the Senate, told reporters last week that some of his colleagues had concerns that the proposed commission's work could be "weaponized" against them in next year's midterm elections.
