MURRAY – A Biden administration communications official on Tuesday highlighted remarks Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell made earlier that day in Murray about money Kentucky will be getting from the coronavirus relief package he opposed earlier this year.

During an appearance at a Murray-Calloway County Economic Development Corporation event, McConnell – Kentucky’s longest-serving U.S. senator and the Senate’s longest-serving Republican leader – commented on his opposition to the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA). That bill passed the Senate with no Republican support on March 10 and was signed into law by President Joe Biden on March 11.
