It may have taken all weekend, but the Senate is now, finally, on the precipice of passing major bipartisan infrastructure legislation.

Last night, an overwhelming bipartisan majority of Senators voted to surmount the final few procedural hurdles and put the bill on a glide path for passage, tomorrow morning. The bill will represent a substantial down payment towards the level of infrastructure investment our country needs and the first time the Senate has come together around such a package in decades.

I will have more to say about it before final passage.
