WASHINGTON (Associated Press) – Senators are returning to the Capitol for a rare Saturday session as they try to make further progress on a roughly $1 trillion infrastructure plan.

A bipartisan group of senators helped it clear one more hurdle Friday and braced to see if support can hold during the next few days of debate and efforts to amend it.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said the chamber should be able to process the legislation quickly given the bipartisan support.

But as Friday evening came around, the full text of what promises to be a massive bill was not finished by the time lawmakers adjourned.
