Republican senators claim "tentative" bipartisan infrastructure deal

Republican senators emerged from a series of closed-door, bipartisan talks Thursday boasting of reaching a "tentative" deal on infrastructure, yet their Democratic counterparts wouldn't go that far.

Why it matters: Members of the s0-called G20 group of 20 senators appear to be the last, best hope for a bipartisan agreement, but the split in where the talks stand highlights the ongoing gulf between the parties on roads, bridges and more.

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) said early Thursday the group agreed to an overall dollar amount and mechanisms to pay for their package.

When Sen. Jon Tester (D-Mont.), a fellow G20 member, was informed of the comments, he replied: "News to me."


We'll see.
