U.S. Senate agenda includes Biden investment plan, debt limit, voting rights -Schumer


The U.S. Senate faces a heavy legislative agenda in the remaining weeks of 2021 as Majority Leader Chuck Schumer warned of possible long sessions to finish President Joe Biden’s “Build Back Better” investment bill, raise the debt limit and consider voting rights reforms.

In a “dear colleague” letter to fellow Senate Democrats, Schumer emphasized his “goal” of passing the $1.75 trillion bill investing in expanded social programs and climate change solutions “before Christmas and get it to the president’s desk.”
