U.S. Senate to tackle debt ceiling, Majority Leader Schumer says

The nation’s debt ceiling will need to be addressed by the U.S. Senate in the upcoming weeks, according to Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, who promised to do so as well as other important topics in a “constructive” session before the current Congress ends.

The senior Democrat in the Senate stated during a news conference in New York City, “The debt ceiling of course is something that we have to deal with, and it’s something that we will look at over the coming few weeks.”

Democratic leaders in the Senate will meet this week to discuss their legislative path forward, Schumer added, declining to discuss any specifics.
