Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., on Monday told reporters there is no need yet to pass more federal legislation in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
"We're basically assessing what we've done already," McConnell told reporters, according to The Hill. "I'm in constant communication with the White House, and if we decide to go forward we'll go forward together."
"I don't think we have yet felt the urgency of acting immediately," he added. "That time could develop, but I don't think it has yet."
McConnell previously has called for a "pause" to assess what in the $3 trillion already passed by Congress has worked and what has not.
White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow has previously said talks with Democrats are likely paused until June.
Still, The Hill noted, Democrats in the House are looking at taking up a new bill as early as Friday. The bill would include hundreds of billions more in state and local funding, money for the troubled Postal Service and more economic stimulus payments for citizens.
