McConnell: Senate to debate relief bill next week

The United States Senate will start debating the next coronavirus relief package next week, according to comments made by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who also said the bill might include unemployment insurance again.

"Next week, we'll be beginning a new bill," McConnell told Kentucky radio station WRVK. However, the partisan divide over the next COVID-19 relief package is expected to prolong passing a new bill.

McConnell previously stated any new stimulus measure must include liability protections for people working in healthcare and education.
