Pelosi says she has 'no intention' of abandoning Democrats infrastructure goals

Would cost $974bln over five years

  

WASHINGTON- U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi said in an interview on CNN on Sunday that she has "no intention" of abandoning parts of Democrats' infrastructure goals not included in a proposal put forward on Thursday by a group of 10 Senate moderates.

A source familiar with the deal reached by 10 senators said it would cost $974 billion over five years and includes $579 billion in new spending. That was well below President Joe Biden's current $1.7 trillion proposal.
