WASHINGTON—Administration officials are putting together a plan for a multipart economic and jobs package that could cost as much as $3 trillion as a way to enact key elements of President Biden’s campaign agenda, according to people involved in the discussions.
The first proposal would center on roads, bridges and other infrastructure projects and include many of the climate-change initiatives Mr. Biden outlined in the “Build Back Better” plan he released during the 2020 campaign.
That package would be followed by measures focusing on education and other priorities, including extending the Child Tax Credit and providing for universal prekindergarten and free community college, the people said.
Mr. Biden is expected to be briefed on the details of the proposals this week, and the people warned that the strategy is preliminary. Mr. Biden would need to sign off on the legislative strategy for it to move forward.
Senior administration officials have also discussed raising taxes on corporations, among other options, to offset the cost of the spending packages.
