Senators voted 67-32 to push the bill forward, after 17 Republicans and all 50 Democrats voted yes.

The roughly $1.2T bipartisan proposal seeks to improve the United States´ aging infrastructure, which will involve in rebuilding ports, airports, bridges and highways.

‘Now we have an agreement on main issues, we are ready to move on,’ Ohio Sen. Rob Portman, who led the talks for Republicans, told reporters.

While Kyrsten Sinema (Arizona), who led the talks for Democrats, expressed his satisfaction at having reached a meeting point.

Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-New York) said he wanted to vote on both the bipartisan agreement and a budget resolution for a broader pact ($3.5 trillion).
