On Aug. 24, the House voted 220-212 along party lines to approve a $3.5 trillion budget framework, after several days of negotiating between Democratic leadership and a group of 10 centrists who had planned to vote against the budget unless the infrastructure vote came first. Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) reached the deal with Rep. Josh Gottheimer (D-N.J.) and the other moderates in the hours before the vote, clearing the way for the spending package.
