Senate Democrats, relying on Vice President Kamala Harris’ tiebreaking vote amid unanimous Republican opposition, finally passed a reconciliation package including provisions to battle climate change and bolster health care. The $430 billion bill ended up much smaller than what President Joe Biden and Democratic leaders were looking for, but the party is touting it as a huge victory ahead of the midterm elections this fall.

The House is slated to vote on legislation and send it to Biden later this week.
