Has An Agreement Been Reached On Second Stimulus Check

However, other members of Congress who support a second stimulus check for authorized Americans are not satisfied that the $908 billion bill does not contain funding for these direct payments. Some, including Senator Bernie Sanders, a former Democratic presidential candidate, have said they would not support the law without the addition of stimulus controls. Some also reject language that would protect businesses and some institutions from coronavirus lawsuits, a priority supported by Republicans. For now, Biden, Pelosi and other Democratic leaders support the year-end deal, but with some “improvements.” Pelosi and Biden are unlikely to impose the issue of stimulus control that could add to the final $270 billion package – a roughly 30 percent increase in the $908 billion bipartisan proposal. This revised Heroes Act has Biden`s support and could fuel future negotiations, depending on whether Georgia`s January 5 run-round will give Democrats control of the Senate (Republicans currently hold a two-seat lead). But the big question now is, if an agreement is reached, when would the payments be received? Because, it seemed, the window to get money into Americans` bank accounts before the end of 2020 could be about to close. Fortune said that “if the last round is a clue, the first of the checks will be deposited within two weeks of the legislation being passed.” If a stimulus package before the 20th An agreement is reached and the current House of Representatives and senate vote before the new Congress has its seat in January. If Trump signs the bailout law, the aid would likely end within weeks, with some groups receiving financial aid before the end of 2020. Among the proposals of both sides were also the financing of the paycheck protection programme (PPP) and the extension of unemployment benefits, although the level of benefits varies according to the proposal.
