- Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer has included the proposal for the West Virginia senator in exchange for his pivotal vote in the passage last month of the $750 billion Inflation Reduction Act.
- The Democrat-controlled Senate will begin the process of passing the so-called Continuing Resolution funding measure with a formal debate Tuesday that will need 60 votes to end and allow for a final passage.
- However, if Schumer cannot get the 60 votes, he’s expected to remove the Manchin proposal to pass the spending measure and keep the government fully operational.
- The proposal faces opposition from both sides of the aisle.
