Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer, a Democrat from New York, believes he has found a legislative loophole allowing Democrats to pass another giant party bill in the Senate.

Although there is no final decision on the extraordinary strategy of including an additional reconciliation bill in this fiscal year, it appears that Senate Democrats, who do not believe any major bill requiring 60 votes will yield to the Senate, want to push some boundaries.

According to parliamentary rules, budget settlement can only be used to pass laws in the Senate by a simple majority of only 51 votes, instead of the 60 votes needed to overcome the obstruction, once a fiscal year, according to Politico.
