McConnell, Senators Can Go Home Until Negotiators Get Coronavirus Deal

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said on Thursday that the Senate will technically be in session next week but signaled he’s letting senators leave Washington, D.C., until an agreement is reached on a fifth coronavirus relief package.

“I will not be adjourning the Senate for our August recess today as has been previously scheduled. I’ve told Republican senators they’ll have a 24-hour notice before a vote, but the Senate will be convening on Monday and I’ll be right here in Washington,” McConnell said from the Senate floor.

The Senate was scheduled to start a four-week August break on Friday, not returning to Washington until early September.
