The prospect of a deal being reached among Congressional Democrats on the bipartisan infrastructure framework (BIF) and the White House's Build Back Better bill may be honing into view, with some positive-sounding comments emerging from Speaker Pelosi's meetings with Democratic party whips.

  • This comes as comments from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)'s meeting with House Dem whips on infra packages are relayed via Congressional reporters: "In order for the BIF to pass, we need to have the trust, the confidence and the reality of the Build Back Better bill...In the next couple of hours, I will be communicating with you on our path from here to there… depending on what happens at the White House. That will determine, our timetable, our course of action but we are in pretty good shape."
  • In an interview with Politico Senator Mark Warner (D-VA) says that "I wouldn't be surprised if Speaker Pelosi pulled a rabbit out of the hat either today or tomorrow"
  • Congressional Democratic leaders are seeking to have a deal on the table before President Biden departs for his trip to the G20 and COP26 summits in Europe. This deadline seems unlikely, but the mood-music on a compromise being reached sounds better than it has for some time.
