Manchin: lawmakers close to a topline number for U.S. spending bill

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Senator Joe Manchin said he believed Democratic lawmakers were getting close to agreeing on a topline figure for spending legislation that contains some of President Joe Biden’s social programs.

“We’re looking at everything today and tomorrow and hopefully we can either have a framework – we agree or disagree and is either irreconcilable or it is something we can work out,” Manchin told reporters. “I think we are getting close to arranging a topline, yes.”
