McConnell: Senate Will Finish Trade, FISA, Highways Before Recess

As the Senate continued to work through “fast-track” trade legislation Thursday with looming deadlines for bills on surface transportation and surveillance, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell reaffirmed that the Senate would tackle it all, and that it could finish before the holiday weekend with “cooperation.”

“I want to remind everybody, we’re going to finish this bill before we leave,” McConnell said, referring to the trade legislation on the floor. “We’re going to deal with FISA, and we’re going to deal with highways. There’s a path forward if people want to take it, that could complete all of this work at a reasonable time, probably sometime tomorrow. Or we can make it difficult, but the end won’t change.”
