The legislation would require 60 votes to pass the Senate, meaning at least 10 Republicans will have to agree.Senate Republicans, led by Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, have said they won't vote to extend the debt ceiling and called on Democrats to do it on their own in the party-line multitrillion-dollar spending and tax bill being considered separately.
