"This is probably the only major piece of legislation that we will be able to see both parties come together and make sure that happens," Rouda told Hill.TV's Kyrstal Ball and Saagar Enjeti on "Rising." 

"My hope also is that the president takes the recommendations of the committee, and Congress in general, and not try to throw monkey wrenches into it, and again, follows our lead," he continued.

Republican lawmakers have doubts about the package, in particular how to pay for it without raising taxes. Woodall, though, said he was optimistic.

"The chances that Harley and I can come together on a plan are a hundred percent," Woodall told Hill.TV. "We need White House leadership and that is what the president is providing, and we need House and Senate leadership, and that's what Nancy Pelosi did when she went down to the White House to partner."
