Congressional leaders reach agreement on COVID-19 stimulus deal

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced on Sunday that “the four leaders of the Senate and the House finalized an agreement” on a COVID-19 relief package. Congressional leaders reached agreement on a $900 billion stimulus package that would provide direct payments and jobless aid to struggling Americans and funds for small businesses, hospitals, schools and vaccine distribution.

Congress agreed on a stimulus deal that would give $600 checks to Americans and provide funds for small businesses and vaccine distribution. Leaders faced a potential partial shutdown on Friday as leaders struggled to agree on the stimulus bill. Donald Trump signed a two-day stop-gap spending bill to avert government shutdown and the house passed the two-day stop-gap spending bill earlier that day.
