[Page S2175] From the Congressional Record Online through the Government Publishing Office [www.gpo.gov] PAYCHECK PROTECTION PROGRAM Mr. McCONNELL. Mr. President, it has now been 4 days since the Paycheck Protection Program ran out of money. Republicans have been trying to secure more funding for this critical program for a week and a half now. At this hour, our Democratic colleagues are still prolonging their discussions with the administration, so the Senate regretfully will not be able to pass more funding for Americans' paychecks today. However, since this is so urgent, I have asked that the Senate meet again tomorrow in a new session that was not previously scheduled, and the Democratic leader has agreed to my request. Colleagues, it is past time--past time--to get this done for the country. Mr. President, if I may, the Senator desires to speak for a few minutes. The ACTING PRESIDENT pro tempore. The Senator from Washington is recognized. ____________________
