U.S. senators reach deal on major points of bipartisan infrastructure bill


U.S. Senate negotiators to a $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill have reached an agreement on the major components of the measure, Republican Senator Rob Portman told reporters on Wednesday.

That could clear the way for the legislation to begin moving through the Senate following months of talks. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said a procedural vote on a bipartisan bill was possible as soon as Wednesday night.
