The Associated Press
The Kentucky Republican did not provide any details. But he said on the Senate floor that lawmakers should pass legislation averting tax increases that would otherwise take effect at the start of New Year's Day.
McConnell spoke after President Barack Obama said in televised remarks from the White House that a deal was in sight.
