Deese’s optimistic outlook comes as Democratic lawmakers are gearing up for an important week on Capitol Hill, as they look to advance their social spending package, dubbed the Build Back Better act, which includes investments to address climate change and child and elderly care.

Some lawmakers were pushing for the package to be approved earlier this month alongside the $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill, but a coalition of moderate Democrats had said they would not move forward with the larger package without reviewing the relevant scores from the Congressional Budget Office (CBO).

CBO last week started to release new estimates for portions of the sweeping spending package.

Asked by Tapper if the legislation will pass the House this week, Bass responded “Yes.”
