U.S. Senate leader says will only consider narrow coronavirus bill

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Republican, on Tuesday said that any new coronavirus-response legislation would have to be “narrowly targeted,” as he criticized a $3 trillion plan unveiled by House of Representatives Democrats.

“We’re going to insist on doing narrowly targeted legislation if and when we do legislate again and we may well,” McConnell told reporters.
