WASHINGTON (AP) — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is telling colleagues that Democrats are in “pretty good shape” on President Joe Biden’s sweeping domestic policy plan and a related $1 trillion infrastructure bill.

Pelosi’s comments, relayed by a person who requested anonymity, came in a meeting Wednesday with Democrats.

That’s as Biden and his party rush to strike agreement on about $1.75 trillion in social services and climate change programs.

Biden has wanted a deal before he departs for overseas summits. Senate Democrats have unveiled a new billionaires’ tax proposal to help pay for it.
