Lawmakers Agree On New $900B Covid-19 Relief Bill


What's Happening:

  • On Sunday, Congressional leaders reached an agreement for a new $900 Billion Covid-19 Relief Bill.

  • The new bill will include a second round of stimulus checks of $600 per individual, an additional $300 per week in jobless benefits and up to $284 Billion for small business loans, amongst other measures

  • The House will vote on the bill on Monday and it is expected to pass through both the House and the Senate in a matter of days. Congress plans to tie the Covid Relief Bill to the massive $1.4 Trillion Spending Bill that they must also pass to avoid a government shutdown.

  • The news of a deal finally being reached after months of negotiations will serve as a great relief to the millions of Americans who currently find themselves unemployed or in difficult financial situations. New unemployment claims have gone up for 3 of the last 4 weeks indicating a "slow-down" in economic recovery.
