As finger-pointing continues in Congress about a second COVID-19 stimulus bill, Illinois' senior U.S. Senator is taking things into his own hands in hopes American's get relief before Christmas.
For the past three-weeks, Democratic Whip Dick Durbin, along with 10 Republican and Democratic Senators, created a new $748 billion stimulus that he says will extend the evection moratorium along with unemployment benefits.
For the first time since the election on Monday, House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi invited Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer to discuss COVID-relief.
Durbin's Coronavirus stimulus bill has yet to be called for a vote.
