Senate parliamentarian Elizabeth MacDonough issued a ruling Monday that could give Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer control over the legislative process and allow Senate Democrats to push through their most ambitious policy proposals.

The ruling would allow the parliamentary procedure known as budget reconciliation to be used for a second time in fiscal year 2021. Senate Democrats previously used reconciliation to pass the $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief package that President Joe Biden signed into law in early March.
