McConnell not confident another relief bill will pass


MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Ky. (WTVQ) – Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell made a visit to Kentucky to discuss the impact of the CARES Act with frontline workers.

Friday, he met with employees at Saint Joseph Mount Sterling, a hospital that received 8 million dollars from the CARES Act.

McConnell thanked the staff, while also rehashing some of the other resources the funding was used for, such as helping small businesses and schools.

He says it’s time for another relief bill to pass, but the Senate and House are in a gridlock over disagreements on what the money should be spent on.

“I wish I could tell you we were gonna get another package, but it doesn’t look that good right now,” McConnell said.

McConnell says he hopes they can overcome their differences, but he’s not confident the bill will pass before the November election.
