Majority Leader Mitch McConnell called on the Senate to stick to the things they can agree on when it comes to a COVID-19 relief package.

While speaking from the floor Friday, the Kentucky Republican urged Democrats to end talks on corporate liability protections as well as state and local aid in the next package. Both have been major sticking points for Republicans and Democrats amid several reports of negotiation deadlocks.

Instead, McConnell said issues that can be agreed on need to get onto the floor like Paycheck Protection Program funding and vaccine distribution money.

“I propose setting aside both liability protections and state and local bailouts, and making law where we can agree,” he stated. “Democrats have thus far declined, but at the same time they are blocking an agreement on these issues.”

The government has until the end of next week to avoid a government shutdown and could add coronavirus relief to the spending bill.
