Senate Cancels Recess To Work On Coronavirus Legislation

The Senate is cancelling its upcoming recess to work on more coronavirus legislation.

Senate Leader Mitch McConnell made the announcement on Thursday, saying he hoped for a 'bipartisan' bill that will "continue combating the coronavirus and keep our economy strong". Just last week, Congress approved an $8.3 billion coronavirus spending package that was signed into law.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi added that the Democrats are open to discussing the issues with the Trump administration as well as making changes to their bill.

"We’ll take a look at anything they send us," McConnell said.

The House is expected to vote on a new spending bill soon. We'll keep you updated on all of the latest, just stay tuned in to KFI AM 640.
