McConnell Unveils $1 Trillion HEALS Act Coronavirus Relief Package


Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) formally unveiled the GOP coronavirus relief proposal on Monday, after a week of disagreements between the White House and fellow Senate Republicans that will now set the stage for a showdown with Democrats over a fifth package bill.

“Just like in March with the CARES Act, Senate Republicans have authored another bold framework to help our nation,” McConnell said from the Senate floor Monday afternoon. “We have produced a tailored and targeted draft that will cut right to the heart of three distinct crises facing our country — getting kids back to school, getting workers back to work, and winning the health care against the virus.”
