The House Democrats released a new proposed bill today with a staggering $3 trillion price tag. Designed to aid the coronavirus pandemic’s continued devastating effects on the economy, the 1,800-plus page bill includes main provisions, among others such as:
Another round of direct payments up to $6,000 per household
An extension of the $600 per week federal unemployment insurance benefit through January 2021, set to currently expire after July 2020
Nearly $1 trillion in relief for state and local governments
Hazard pay for essential workers who face heightened health risks during the crisis
$10 billion in emergency disaster assistance grants and a strengthened employee retention tax credit for small businesses
Renter and homeowner protection from eviction and foreclosures
Additional coronavirus testing and contact tracing
This latest bill, expected to be brought to a vote by the end of the week, would become the most expensive spending package in U.S. history – trumping the $2.2 trillion measure Congress passed in March.
