As the U.S. continues to grapple with the economic fallout of the coronavirus pandemic, some help will soon be on the way.
Today (Monday), Congress is expected to pass a nearly $1 trillion COVID-19 relief bill that will include a second stimulus check for $600 and an extra $300 in enhanced unemployment insurance for 11 weeks.
The new relief bill also includes $248 billion for another round of loans for small businesses; $12 billion of which is earmarked for minority-owned businesses and $15 billion for live venues and independent movie theaters.
What’s your reaction to $600 stimulus checks? Do you think the bill goes far enough or is more help still needed?
