Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky, will probably “regret” suggesting that states should file for bankruptcy as they struggle with the coronavirus virus outbreak, Maryland GOP Gov. Larry Hogan said Sunday,
In an interview on ABC News’ “This Week,” Hogan, who is chairman of the National Governors Association, said the administration is supportive of bipartisan legislation to help states.
“This is a very bipartisan effort… we’re on the front lines, we’ve taken all these actions,” he said of the NGA. “We’ve talked with people in both [chambers on Capitol Hill]… we have a commitment from the president and vice president.”
“I thought Mitch McConnell probably would regret making that comment the other day,” he said, adding, “I’m hopeful we will be able to convince Sen. McConnell to go along with the bipartisan bill in the Senate and the administration’s commitment to help the states in that final stimulus package.”
Hogan also refused to criticize governors who have decided to reopen.
“I don’t want to second guess my colleagues,” he said, adding for his own state: “I'm going to be very cautious. We’re going to make decisions on science.”
