The office of Sen. Jon Tester, D-Mont., reported that, due to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., recessing the Senate until Oct. 19 because of increasing cases of COVID-19, a hearing on Amtrak scheduled for Wednesday has postposed.
Tester is pushing aggressively to get the hearing rescheduled as soon as it is safe to do so, his office said.
