U.S. Sen. Roy Blunt is the senior senator from Missouri

When it comes to finding an infrastructure amount both sides can agree upon, Sen. Roy Blunt said, "We can find ways to do this."

Sen. Blunt was one of five Republican senators to meet with President Biden this week to talk about the president's proposed plan for repairing, replacing, building and adding to the physical underpinnings of the country. For openers, Blunt noted, "I think if we can define infrastructure in a way both sides are comfortable with, we have a real chance to move forward."
