WATCH LIVE: President Biden speaks about scaled down domestic plan
This live event has ended.
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden has traveled to Capitol Hill to pitch House Democrats on a dramatically scaled back domestic policy package. It's now $1.75 trillion and without a paid family leave program and other priorities. But it's still a sweeping proposal with new health care, free-prekindergarten and climate change programs. Later, the president will make remarks at the White House. The president has wanted to announce at least the framework of a deal before departing Thursday for global summits. Progressive House Democrats want to see the fine print of the big domestic bill before voting on a related infrastructure measure.
