U.S. Senate Republicans Discussing Possible ‘Targeted’ Coronavirus Relief Bill

Many U.S. Senate Republican lawmakers are hoping to bring up a coronavirus relief bill for a vote sometime next week when everyone returns from August recess.

The vote could back Democrats into a corner before the November elections by making the vote politically difficult.

Senate Republican Conference Chairman John Barrasso (R-WY) said, “We have a focused, targeted solution that we hope that the House would pass, and the House would agree to.”

However, the Senate will need 60 votes to approve the measure and Democrats are expected to block the measure.

Disagreements between Republicans and Democrats over funding for state and local governments, business liability protection and total cost of the bill caused the two parties to walk away from a potential 4th and final COVID-19 deal before their annual August recess.
