US: Republican Senate negotiators on an infrastructure deal were optimistic about a $1.2 trillion bipartisan bill on Sunday after President Joe Biden withdrew his threat to veto the measure unless a separate Democratic spending plan also passes Congress.
U.S. Senator Rob Portman said he and his fellow negotiators were “blindsided” by Biden’s comments on Thursday after a rare bipartisan compromise to fix the nation’s roads, bridges and ports.
“I was very glad to see the president clarify his remarks because it was inconsistent with everything that we had been told all along the way,” Portman said in an interview with ABC.
Moments after announcing the bipartisan deal on Thursday, Biden appeared to put it in jeopardy with his comment that the infrastructure bill would have to move “in tandem” with a larger bill that includes a host of Democratic priorities that he hopes to pass along party lines.
Eurozone: Britain has yet to receive a formal response from the European Union over its proposal to further extend a grace period on checks on some foodstuffs moving to Northern Ireland just days before the latest deadline, a minister said on Sunday.
“We think we have put forward a sensible proposal, something actually quite moderate while we work out a long-term solution and I am hopeful over the next few days that those technical discussions, we’ll be able to get that secured with the EU,” Northern Ireland minister Brandon Lewis told Times Radio.
“We’re coming very close up against the deadline now and we’ve not yet formally heard back from the EU. They need to come back to us. I am hopeful they will come back in a positive way.”
The current grace period waiving checks on British-made sausages and other chilled meats moving to Northern Ireland is due to end on June 30.
