Negotiators reached an agreement in principle on Saturday evening to extend the debt ceiling and avoid a catastrophic default. The legislative text for the bill will be prepared by Republicans and reviewed by the Biden administration before being finalized, Jeffries said in the letter to Democrats.

Biden and McCarthy are expected to speak no later than 2 p.m. and “shortly thereafter, the text of the legislative bill will be released by House Republicans and made available to the House, Senate and the American people.” “Said Jeffries, adding that senior members of the Biden administration are also expected to notify the House Democratic Caucus of the deal at 5 p.m.
