A second Coronavirus stimulus bill is turning into a "typical Washington D.C. parlor game,' according to U.S. Representative Rodney Davis. At the end of November, a group of bipartisan lawmakers proposed a $908 billion package later shot down by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell due to a lack of a "targeted bill." The Taylorville Republican said the problem is House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her reluctance to work on bipartisan relief.
A group of bipartisan lawmakers are set to unveil a second $908 billion aid package in hopes of Congressional approval. Around $300 billion remains unused from the first COVID-19 pandemic relief fund that President Trump says should go to Americans in the form of direct payments. Since the election, Leader McConnell and Speaker Pelosi have yet to hold talks on a second COVID-relief bill.
