A bipartisan group of 10 senators announced Thursday they have reached a deal on a $1.2 trillion infrastructure package, the most significant development yet in negotiations over a key priority of the Biden administration, but it still faces serious obstacles from skeptics in both parties.

(CNN)A bipartisan group of 10 senators announced Thursday they have reached a deal on a $1. 2 trillion infrastructure package, the most significant development yet in negotiations over a key priority of the Biden administration, but it still faces serious obstacles from skeptics in both parties.

While the bipartisan group of negotiators contains five Republicans, that's still five GOP votes short -- and that's if all 50 members of the Democratic caucus vote year.

Liberal members of the Senate complained about the bipartisan group's negotiations this week urging Democrats to go at it alone.

It's time to move forward," Sen. Elizabeth Warren, a Massachusetts Democrat, told CNN regarding the bipartisan group's negotiations.

The efforts of the group, made up of moderate members of both parties, took on new importance after Biden broke off talks with Sen. Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia, a Republican who had been empowered by GOP leadership to negotiate with the White House on behalf of the conference.

"Earlier today, White House staff were briefed by Democratic Senators working on the bipartisan agreement on infrastructure," White House spokesman Andrew Bates said in a statement.
