The U.S. Senate is waiting on Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to make revisions to proposed legislation that would repeal and replace the nation’s health care law. Republican Bill Cassidy says the initial Senate healthcare plan doesn’t have enough support, so he hopes McConnell uses some of the ideas the senior Senator from Louisiana suggested months ago.

Congress reconvenes for the fall session today, which means the discussion begins about getting more federal aid to Louisiana. Governor John Bel Edwards wants Congress to approve a $2 billion federal aid package that will cover housing, economic development and infrastructure repairs. In a letter to the White House, the governor called it a reasonable request. Republican US Senator Bill Cassidy is optimistic Congress will help.
