Congress Decides On COVID Relief — But Not Everyone Is Happy

$908B coronavirus relief deal expected to be added to spending bill

Bipartisan lawmakers are set to unveil more details on a proposed coronavirus relief bill Tuesday as they look to break a months-long stalemate over another round of emergency aid in the few days Congress has left to act.

The $908 billion proposal will likely be attached to the larger omnibus spending bill needed to avert a government shutdown on Dec. 11.

Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., endorsed the narrower deal last week —a stark reversal from previous months when they maintained that at least $2.2 trillion is needed in new spending — spurring hope that lawmakers would be able to strike a deal before the end of the month.
