Today, Senate Republicans offered a $928 billion-infrastructure plan to President Biden as part of the slow-moving negotiations over a plan for the country’s roads, bridges and broadband.

This also comes as Biden plans to announce a massive $6 trillion budget that would push the United States to its highest levels of spending since World War II.
