Next week the House Budget Committee will put together the final draft of the proposed stimulus package. A lot of the members align with Biden’s initial proposal.
This bill could potentially pass by the end of next week if there are no major conflicts going through the Senate. The committee knows that this is a pressing bill that needs immediate attention. According to a recent study, an estimated 11.4 million workers will lose their unemployment benefits in the next few months unless Congress passes the next relief package in the next few weeks.
The key provisions that have already been passed by the House include stimulus checks, unemployment assistance, nutrition assistance, housing aid, tax credits, education and child care, health insurance subsidies and Medicaid, aid to states, vaccines and testing, as well as minimum wage increases.
