President Biden, during a visit Tuesday to Wisconsin, pitched a nearly $1 trillion infrastructure deal struck by a bipartisan group of senators as a “generational investment” that would help replace structurally deficient bridges and aging water lines, and shore up the nation’s energy grid.

“America has always been propelled into the future by landmark national investments,” Biden said.

His appearance in La Crosse comes as the White House seeks to navigate divisions among Democrats on Capitol Hill about how to proceed toward passage and secure enough Republican votes to claim a bipartisan victory.

Here’s what to know:

  • The top American military commander in Afghanistan expressed deep concern that the country could slide into all-out civil war and face “very hard times.”
  • The House approved legislation to remove statues of Confederate leaders from the U.S. Capitol and replace the bust of Roger B. Taney, the U.S. chief justice who wrote the Supreme Court’s Dred Scott decision of 1857 that said people of African descent are not U.S. citizens.
  • Biden and first lady Jill Biden will travel Thursday to Surfside, Fla., where a condo building collapsed last week, leaving 12 confirmed dead and 149 people still unaccounted for while the search for survivors continues.
  • House Republicans remained noncommittal about whether they would participate in a select committee proposed by Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to probe the Jan. 6 Capitol attack.
