This Sunday lawmakers proposed a pandemic relief bill that, if passed, would provide $ 300 in weekly unemployment benefitsBut it does not include a second $ 1,200 stimulus check, so this direct payment would go to Joe Biden, who could propose one next year.
Sunday’s proposed relief package consists of $ 908 billion.
Stimulus checks were very popular when they were first distributed after the pandemic, and Biden on Friday expressed hope for a second round in negotiations over the weekend.
However, this was not the case, since Senators involved in the negotiations said stimulus checks will not be included as part of the proposal, as this would greatly increase the cost of the project, according to the Chicago Tribune.
Sen. Dick Durbin of Illinois indicated that excluding stimulus checks while securing financial aid for small businesses and assistance for renters was the only way to come to terms with Republicans.
The proposal is expected to include an additional $ 300 a week in unemployment benefit payments. Also, extend the freeze on evictions for people unable to pay rent.
