He also said the House will pass a long-term bill that will ultimately go to conference with the Senate’s long-term bill. “When they [pass a bill] in September, we’ll follow regular order, go to conference, we’ll try to work out the differences and we’ll try to agree how to pay for it,” McConnell said. “That’s the way it normally works around here.” Read more.
