However, the bill is not fully written yet. The Senate could begin debating on the measure soon.

“This is also important to demonstrate that Republicans and Democrats can come together for the really hard stuff to negotiate in good faith,” stated Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska). “And to broker an agreement that is not going to work just for Republicans or Democrats. It is going to work for the country.”

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said the body could vote as early as Wednesday night to advance the proposal. The New York lawmaker warned senators should be prepared to work through the weekend.
