Washington: US lawmakers on Friday adopted President Joe Biden’s sprawling climate, tax and health care plan — a major win for the veteran Democrat that includes the biggest ever American investment in the battle against global warming.

The House of Representatives approved the measure by a 220-207 vote along party lines following its adoption in the Senate on Sunday by a razor-thin margin, with Vice President Kamala Harris casting the tie-breaking vote.
