The Senate will tie a critical hurricane relief measure to legislation that would increase the nation’s borrowing limit, after theHouse planned to take up the two bills separately.
Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn, R-Texas, told the Washington Examiner the Senate will add the debt limit measure after the House passes legislation to provide $8 billion in disaster relief to help Texas recover from Hurricane Harvey.
“There is no money to spend unless we lift the debt ceiling,” Cornyn said. “So that is what I expect.”
In an interview with the Washington Examiner, Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., said the House would take up and pass a Senate bill combining both Harvey funding and the debt ceiling increase.
