Durbin Says $2-Trillion Bill Came Together Quickly

Lawmakers on capitol hill wrestled over the final details of a giant $2 trillion economic stimulus bill.


The US Senate wrangled on both sides, Republican and Democrat, over the massive amount of money and just how and where it gets divided up.


Key points are possible $1200 checks for adults and $500 checks for children. Billions are also on the table for industries ravaged by social distancing and stay at home orders as well as states who are spending to fight off the virus.


As the final details were hammered out Senator Dick Durbin says the bill has been crafted at light speed for a group that is usually accustomed to taking its time.



Now the bill will head to the House of Representatives for final approval.
