House, Senate Stalemate over Next Round of Coronavirus Relief

With Congress leaving town for Memorial Day, the House or Representatives and the Senate remain at loggerheads over if, when and how to proceed with the next round of coronavirus relief. Last week the Democratic-controlled House passed a $3 trillion package but it arrived at the Senate with a thud as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and the President showed no interest in proceeding with the House bill. McConnell said further legislative action was on hold and that the House bill was dead on arrival. President Trump declared he’d veto the bill.

As the Senators left town last week, policy disagreements were brewing within the Republican conference as the unemployment numbers leveled out at over 2 million new claims a week. Of the 35 Senate seats being contested this year, 23 are currently held by Republicans.
