No. 2 House Democrat says spending deal could come within hours

U.S. House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) leaves the House floor at the U.S. Capitol in Washington

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer on Tuesday said Democrats are hopeful they can reach agreement on their domestic investment bill “in the next few hours” and move to vote on a separate bipartisan infrastructure legislation this week.

Democrats, however, have not yet come to a consensus on how to increase the nation’s borrowing authority past Dec. 3, the No. 2 House Democratic leader told reporters at a briefing, though he said they will “get it done one way or another.”
