Parliamentarian Green Lights Reconciliation Bill

“The Senate parliamentarian has given the green light to a $740 billion budget reconciliation bill that will reform the tax code, tackle climate change and lower drug prices, putting the Senate on track to begin voting on the bill Saturday afternoon,” The Hill reports.

“Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) announced Saturday that the bill is on track to pass this weekend, now that the parliamentarian, Elizabeth McDonough, has ruled that its provisions comply with the budgetary rules enabling it to circumvent a GOP filibuster.”
