(AP) — President Joe Biden is stepping up his bid to push his multitrillion-dollar domestic agenda through Congress. He’s planning to have lunch Wednesday with Senate Democrats.

The gathering comes a day after party leaders announced a compromise for pouring federal resources into climate change, health care and family service programs. The midday session will be Biden’s first working meeting with lawmakers at the Capitol since becoming president.

White House aides say it will mark only the start of his efforts to firm up support for forthcoming legislation embodying his priorities among Democrats. His party’s skinny congressional majorities leave him with virtually no votes to lose.
