    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), has called the House bill “an unserious product” and President Trump, who would have to sign it, called it “dead on arrival”. But Senate leadership has indicated that they do see the need for more relief and stimulus; therefore, members could significantly alter parts of the bill. In a letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., NACo wrote, “Serving Americans every day at the local level is a non-partisan undertaking, and what America’s local governments need right now is a bipartisan solution to address the enormous economic and public health challenge that COVID has presented.”. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on Friday called on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to cancel a hearing next week for Rod Rosenstein, the former deputy attorney general who launched the special counsel’s investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. And Hayden said Democrats, who hold a majority in the House and minority in the Senate, would aim to include the proposals in a package of bills up for consideration in the divided statehouse.
