Sen. Patrick Toomey (R-PA), co-sponsor of the more popular cryptocurrency amendment to the infrastructure bill (supported by developers, Ted Cruz, and - oddly, Gene Simmons), announced on Monday that a bipartisan group of Senators has reached a compromise, and will request to pass the amendment via unanimous consent.

"I am delighted to announce we have reached a bipartisan agreement that includes Democrats, Republicans, members of the Senate and the Treasury Dept on a issue that had been vexing us for a while," said Toomey, adding "We came together to provide greater clarity on who are the actual brokers of a cryptocurrency.We're not proposing anything sweeping or anything radical."
