US’ Manchin: Made significant progress in bipartisan infrastructure proposal negotiations
US Senate, Democratic Senator Joe Manchin crossed wires, via Reuters, to renew optimism over President Joe Biden’s infrastructure spending plan.
The policymaker said, “We have made significant progress in bipartisan infrastructure proposal negotiations,” while also adding, “We are close to an agreement.”
Earlier in the day, Senate Republicans blocked the opening debate on the infrastructure spending bill by 51-49 votes.
Given the market’s recent optimism, backed by strong earnings, the news should help risk barometers to consolidate recent losses. It should, however, be noted that the updates on the procedural vote over the stimulus is uncertain despite today’s deadline and the same tests the latest risk-on mood.
