Top Congressional Leaders to Meet with President
Continuing their discussions on infrastructure
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer are expected to meet next Wednesday morning with President Trump for a second round of talks on a bipartisan infrastructure package. It is unclear if other lawmakers will also attend.
A Senate aide said that the president is expected to set out his plans on paying for the program.
At last month’s meeting in the White House, the two sides agreed to pursue a $2 trillion infrastructure package, and they agreed to meet in mid-May to discuss funding.
Infrastructure has long been viewed as an area of potential bipartisan agreement. Divisions remain on how to fund it.
- For President Trump and the congressional leaders as they all prep for next week’s meeting on infrastructure.
That a means for paying for the infrastructure program can be found that would benefit all Americans in a fair way.
