Senators headed home a day early on Wednesday for their Thanksgiving recess, even as COVID-19 relief talks remain on the table. The last round of coronavirus relief legislation expired in July, and with it, boosted unemployment benefits. Further provisions, including jobless benefits for those who expend their state unemployment and pandemic funding for state and local governments, are set to expire at the end of the year. While the House passed its own follow-up legislation months ago, the Senate and White House have not agreed on a relief bill and show no sign of doing so before the year ends. “I just get the sense that Mitch McConnell sees absolutely zero urgency,” said Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.). The Senate will return Nov. 30, just 3 weeks before another recess for the rest of the year.
