WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell welcomed a bipartisan agreement on additional coronavirus relief on Tuesday and said he hoped the Senate would quickly pass it.
McConnell, a Republican, said the deal had over $320 billion for a small business loan program, $60 billion for another emergency small business loan program, $75 billion for hospitals and $25 billion for coronavirus testing.
“I welcome this bipartisan agreement and hope the Senate will quickly pass it once members have reviewed the final text,” he said.
