Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told reporters Tuesday that while Republicans have no appetite for another stimulus package now, they are looking at potential changes that could be made to previous stimulus laws enacted by Congress and President Trump.

“We’re going to look at this on a daily basis, and react to the needs and look at the mistakes we may have made in the previous legislation and go about correcting them,” said the Kentucky Republican.

“Every day, we’re looking at adjustments. The Treasury is trying to make adjustments on their own,” McConnell said. “Some may require legislative activity. We’ve heard from a lot of the governors who would like to add more flexibility to use the money we’ve already sent them.”
