Leadership Working on Support for $908 Billion Bipartisan COVID-19 Relief Proposal(s)
A $1.4 trillion omnibus spending agreement is at hand.
Separately, lawmakers are considering $908 billion of COVID-19 relief.
The first part of the COVID-19 relief is in the amount of $748 billion and the second part includes $160 billion of state and local government aid and liability protections. The first part ($748 billion) includes the less politically sensitive items.
Observer optimism remains high even though lawmakers still did not have the votes for COVID-19 relief as of Monday evening. Congressional leaders are expected to continue negotiating Tuesday.
