Biden, Democrats Back $908 Billion Stimulus Bill With No Second Check

In fact, it had started to seem as if the most likely outcome was no further stimulus, at least until after the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden. The proposal includes enhanced federal unemployment benefits of $300 per week; $160 billion in financial aid to state and local governments; $288 billion to renew the Paycheck Protection Program and help small businesses; and $25 billion in rental assistance. It does not include a second stimulus check.
