Democrats hope to pass the legislation through a process known as reconciliation, which would allow them to pass the spending with a simple majority and avoid a filibuster. But there's no guarantee that all Senate Democrats will support the package. Democrats on the House Oversight Committee are investigating a review of 2020 election results.

Mayor De Blasio Announces 'Hometown Heroes' Ticker Tape Parade

"Amanda Blasio has announced a ticker tape parade through the Canyon of Heroes for next month to honor essential workers. That announcement apparently omitted funeral workers got them as reported. Ben Jaca says many of them feel the role they play throughout the pandemic has been overlooked. It seems as though people are still really uncomfortable talking about death and talking about the really stark scary things that happened last year when it came to these refrigerator trucks. And all the bodies literally piling up all around the city. City Hall spokesperson says they always planned on including funeral workers in the July 7th

"To go. The White House has questions still need to be addressed, including the details of the policy. One issue is how to pay for the rail, bridges and roads plan. Republicans opposed traditional tax increases, but the plan does include tying the gas tax to inflation. China has passed a new law that punishes those who design or implement sanctions on China. NPR's Emily Fang reports. It's part of a host of measures China is using to counter several rounds of U. S and European sanctions. It's called the anti foreign Sanctions law, and it gives China vast abilities to come up with countermeasures against organizations, individuals and their families if they are involved in sanctioning China.

New York State lawmakers wrapped up the legislative searching yesterday, but one voice was conspicuously absent. Usually Governor Cuomo would make a final push to pass legislation on the last day, but reporter Karen DeWitt says after several recent misconduct scandal and allegations Cuomo has been hands off. It usually takes the governor to bring this all together, so we're not expecting to see that the the bills are kind of surprisingly being negotiated independently and sort of rising and Falling on their own merits. New York lawmakers have reached deals on several criminal justice measures, including ceiling some records, Those lawmakers passed a package of criminal justice reform bills last night on their last day. The less is more act would largely eliminate the practice of incarcerating people for nonviolent parole violations. Another bill ends the arrest and prosecution of Children under the age of 12. Except in homicide cases, legislative leaders will decide when to send the bills to Governor Cuomo, who would then have 10 days to sign it or veto it. The state Legislature also passed a bill that would force election workers to start counting absentee, military and special ballots on a rolling basis. In Milwaukee last night.

It's morning edition from NPR News. I'm Noel King and I'm Sarah McCammon, A bipartisan group in the Senate says they've reached a deal on a $1.2 trillion infrastructure plan that includes $579 billion in new spending. Party leaders have yet to weigh in on the plan. But the deal is the latest sign of moderate Democrats flexing their power in a closely divided Washington NPR congressional correspondent Kelsey Snell is following this story and joins us now. Hi, Kelsey. Hi. Good morning. So first of all, what do we know about what's in this new deal on infrastructure? Well, I guess to start with there were 10 senators by from each party who worked on this and they were led by Republican Mitt Romney of Utah and Kirsten cinema of Arizona, a Democrat. You know, they say that they have an agreement on a framework for an eight year spending plan that would not include any tax hikes. But that's basically all we know. Except for the top line figures. You know, it is certainly progress from where things stood earlier in the week where we saw talks between the White House And Republican Shelley Moore Capito completely fall apart, but we really don't know if party leaders in the Senate will take it or like it. Our of enough senators will get behind the plan. We do know, though the White House was briefed last night, But Deputy Press secretary Andrew Bates put out a statement saying there are still questions about policy and how to pay for it. So big questions there. Yeah, Aside from cinema, who you mentioned, we've heard a lot about West Virginia Democrat Joe Manchin, of course, as the main voice for moderates. Tell us about who else is a potential roadblock for Biden's plants. You know, it depends on the issue, and that's kind of part of why it's hard to navigate for party leaders. And for Biden. The senators who opposed some gun control measures aren't exactly the same ones who might oppose, say, raising taxes for infrastructure spending when it comes to the filibuster, which is another major question here. So far, we've really only heard from mansion in cinema, saying they absolutely will not do away with the filibuster. Others. Like Arizona, Freshman Mark Kelly and Jean Jean and Maggie has no New Hampshire have avoided taking a firm position. Sometimes they say they're open to some nebulous reforms. You know, if you look at the states that these senators represent their kind of swing states or states that are generally voted for Republicans for statewide offices, and you know they Answer to voters who are just not monolithic, and they are having to take out positions that are very different from what some of the progressives in their party would like to see and would like to say Democrats all represent. Yes, Speaking of the progressives, there's a lot of pressure from progressive Democrats in Congress to follow through on Biden's promises in this regard. How are other Dems feeling about this? You know, some Democrats tell me they think that it's counterproductive to try to force the hand of particularly mansion. You know that it would be hard to find a single Senate Democrat Who is it even surprised by how mansion is handling this? I think Delaware Senator Chris Coons described it the way most of his colleagues would Joe Manchin since he got here and we were sworn in on the same day, has been the most centrist Democrat of our caucus and has insisted on bipartisanship as much as possible. That is something that's been consistent about Joe for a decade. You can hear there. I caught up with him in the halls in the capital, and a bunch of reporters were trying to kind of get a handle on. How do you understand Joe Manchin and you know, they say there is frustration among progressives in the house in particular, but they have different political constituencies and senators do And this is exactly why there's no room for error, provided he can't cave to moderates in the Senate and then hope the same legislation that satisfies them. Can pass in the house, where there's just a bigger and more powerful progressive wing. And you know, a fairly sizable moderate when they're too It is just a very, very narrow opening for success. And what does that mean for Biden's larger agenda? You know, understand It rules you need 60 votes to clear filibuster. So even if you had all 50 Democrats on the same page, you still need 10 Republicans to agree to anything, and minority leader Mitch McConnell says he's going to try to stop by it in 100%. So that leaves most Senate Democrats thinking about getting rid of the filibuster. And like we said, we can't they can't go through with that. If mansion in cinema refused to go along with the plan they need every Democrat to feel like the party has been trying to get a deal with Republicans before they can move on and accept that they have to figure it all out on their own. It is still always infrastructure Week. Thanks so much. Kelsey. Thanks for having me NPR congressional correspondent Kelsey Snell. Do you like me Lose your driver's license all the time, Apple says.
