Sens. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) and Susan Collins (R-Maine) said they believe that the massive infrastructure bill has enough support to pass in the Senate, with Manchin saying the chamber should "finish up" by Thursday.

Why it matters: A bipartisan group of senators, including Manchin and Collins, have been negotiating the deal for months and are cutting it close to their self-imposed deadline for passing the measure before August recess.

  • Appearing on on CNN's "State of the Union," Manchin expressed optimism, saying, "When you see Chuck Schumer and Mitch McConnell voting for the same thing, it's unbelievable."
  • Collins said the text of the bill would likely be shared on Sunday evening and senators would begin "consideration of some amendments."

The big picture: The Senate voted 67-32 last Wednesday to advance the bipartisan $1.2 trillion infrastructure measure.

  • At the time of the vote, portions of the bill remained unwritten. Collins told Jake Tapper that "large parts of text" were already shared with Senate offices and lawmakers.
  • 17 Republicans voted with Democrats to advance the bill.

"Finally, infrastructure week!": Biden hails passage of $1.2 trillion bill

President Biden on Saturday hailed the passage of the $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill as a "once-in-a-generation investment" that will create "millions of jobs" and "modernize our infrastructure."

The big picture: The bill's passage is a major win for the president after months of Democratic party infighting and negotiations.

The day after the fragile passage of President Biden's infrastructure bill, House leaders were already working on Part Deux: passing the bigger social-safety-net bill two weeks from now — the week before Thanksgiving.

The intrigue: I'm told lawmakers are angling for invitations to the infrastructure signing ceremony even before the date has been announced — each making the case for why they were a vital part of closing the deal.

The House on Friday passed, 228-206, a $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill, handing President Biden a major victory after months of party infighting and negotiations.

Why it matters: The core piece of Biden’s signature domestic agenda includes massive investments in roads, bridges and waterways, among other “hard infrastructure” provisions.
