Stimulus check: what's included in the $ 1.3 trillion coronavirus aid package
White House chief of staff, Mark Meadows, reported on Friday that President Trump is willing to sign the $1.3 trillion stimulus relief package.
President Donald Trump is willing to sign a $1.3 trillion stimulus bill into law, as Republicans and Democrats remain at odds over an agreement on a coronavirus relief package.
White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows confirmed on Friday that the President has given the green light to the bill, which is $300 billion more than the $1 trillion spend outlined in the Republican's HEALS Act.
There have been ongoing negotiations involving Meadows, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnunchin and Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer. After the proposal for the $1.3 trillion stimulus relief package was announced, Pelosi, whose party wants to spend $3 trillion dollar as outlined in their HEROES Act, said that the total was not enough.
Negotiations moving forward
Republicans want to be involved in every major piece of this new stimulus relief package. This is why in this bill they want to negotiate unemployment benefits, as well as state and local government funding. Democrats, on the other hand, want to focus on the amount the bill is going to be worth and then figure out the details.
