CBS News reports:
A bipartisan group of senators reached a deal Thursday on infrastructure legislation, after President Biden ended negotiations with a team of Republican senators on Tuesday. The group of five Republicans and five Democrats released a joint statement Thursday afternoon saying they had reached an agreement, although they did not offer any details about it.
“Our group – comprised of 10 Senators, 5 from each party – has worked in good faith and reached a bipartisan agreement on a realistic, compromise framework to modernize our nation’s infrastructure and energy technologies. This investment would be fully paid for and not include tax increases,” the senators said in a statement.

Sen. Mitt Romney, one of the lead GOP negotiators in bipartisan infrastructure talks, said that the senators in the group have agreed to an overall dollar amount and mechanisms to pay for the package. Asked about that, Jon Tester says: “News to me.”
