A new COVID-19 relief package in Congress is still up in the air.
November 11, 2020
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has said that the House is looking to move quickly on a new relief package. Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has indicated that the current GOP-held Senate would like to pass something before the end of the year. There are still many questions about the size and timing of possible relief.

Despite the differences between the parties on the overall size of a package, as well as specific relief provisions, there are areas of agreement. Stay tuned.
