"March to Common Ground" Bipartisan Proposal Calls for $500 Billion for State/Local Governments
Today, a bipartisan group of 50 members of the U.S. House announced a “March to Common Ground” COVID-19 relief plan. The proposal is the latest attempt by Washington lawmakers to pass a fifth phase of COVID-19 aid and includes $1.52 trillion of spending. The House’s moderate lawmakers likely hope this is a number that can make the White House, Senate, and House content. This March to Common Ground could be the grand bargain needed to break the ice in Washington.
