Senate Democrats said it’s now much more likely they will take up a wage hike in separate legislation and not on the broad COVID-19 spending package that they hope to usher into law.

“We are going to find another path, which we need to do,” said Sen. Richard Blumenthal, a Connecticut Democrat. “Even though the parliamentarian has ruled and even though we may not have the votes right now, we will find another path.”

House Democrats passed the Biden coronavirus relief bill early Saturday morning. It includes a national mandate to set the minimum wage at $15 over the next four years.
