Appearing on on CNN's "State of the Union," Manchin expressed optimism, saying, "When you see Chuck Schumer and Mitch McConnell voting for the same thing, it's unbelievable."
Collins said the text of the bill would likely be shared on Sunday evening and senators would begin "consideration of some amendments."
The big picture: The Senate voted 67-32 last Wednesday to advance the bipartisan $1.2 trillion infrastructure measure.
At the time of the vote, portions of the bill remained unwritten. Collins told Jake Tapper that "large parts of text" were already shared with Senate offices and lawmakers.
17 Republicans voted with Democrats to advance the bill.
