Democrats Try Again to Pass Infrastructure Bill

WASHINGTON—Democrats worked Friday to forge an agreement between their moderate and progressive wings on the parameters of a social policy and climate package, hoping to break an impasse over a separate $1 trillion infrastructure bill that progressives have threatened to block.

House Democratic leaders had planned on bringing the public works legislation up for a vote on Thursday, but a progressive rebellion against the central element of President Biden’s agenda forced lawmakers to push the vote to Friday. Progressive Democrats are insisting that the party first unite around and pass the social policy and climate proposal, using their threat to oppose the infrastructure bill as leverage in the separate negotiation with other Democrats.
