Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell on Monday predicted that Congress would approve further funding for states and cities whose budgets have been hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic.

"There probably will be another state and local funding bill but we need to make sure that we achieve something that will go beyond simply sending out money," McConnell told Fox News Radio.

He said a suggestion he made last week that states could enter bankruptcy was just "an option to be looked at." The suggestion was criticized by leaders on both sides of the aisle. However, as recently as Monday, President Donald Trump was questioning why the federal government should bail out "poorly run," largely Democrat-led states.
