REUTERS/Yuri GripasWASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said on Tuesday that he and his fellow Senate Republicans have begun considering COVID-19 economic relief provisions that President Donald Trump would be willing to sign into law later this month. And I like to remind everybody that the way you get a result is you have to have a presidential signature,” McConnell added. The Kentucky Republican said that he and House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy spoke with White House officials about what measures Trump would accept and that proposals are being circulated to Senate Republicans for feedback. McConnell said COVID-19 relief provisions would likely be combined with a must-pass measure to replenish government funding that is set to expire later in December.

Mnuchin said his action was not an “economic decision” but one based on the aid law passed by Congress.

Mnuchin, speaking to reporters after testifying before the Senate Banking Committee, said he also will discuss additional coronavirus aid and would review a new $908 billion bipartisan Senate proposal. “The president wants to make sure there’s not a shutdown and our first choice is not to do a CR (continuing resolution), it is to get appropriations passed,” Mnuchin said.

WASHINGTON — A bipartisan group of lawmakers outlined a temporary $908 billion coronavirus relief proposal on Tuesday, far less than Democrats had hoped for, aimed at breaking a stalemate that has persisted for months. Republican leadership is pushing for a $500 billion package that has faltered in the Senate amid a lack of bipartisan support. The proposal includes $160 billion in aid to state and local governments, a priority for Democrats that Republicans have resisted. The framework provides $288 billion in support for small businesses like restaurants, and $180 billion to renew unemployment insurance, according to a summary obtained by NBC News. The working group pushing the new deal also includes four Republicans: Rep. Tom Reed of New York and Sens.

U.S. bipartisan lawmakers propose $908 billion COVID-19 relief bill
  + stars: | 2020-12-01 | by ( Reuters Staff | ) www.reuters.com sentiment -0.94   time to read: +1 min
Slideshow ( 3 images )WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A bipartisan group of U.S. senators and members of the House of Representatives on Tuesday proposed a $908 billion COVID-19 relief bill that would fund measures through March 31, including $228 billion in additional paycheck protection program funds for hotels, restaurants and other small businesses. State and local governments would receive direct aid under the bipartisan bill, the lawmakers said. Senator Mitt Romney, a Republican, said the plan contains $560 billion in “repurposed” funding from the CARES Act enacted in March. A compromise $300 per week in additional unemployment benefits would also be in the package, according to the lawmakers. Pelosi and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin were expected to discuss coronavirus aid and a must-pass government funding bill later on Tuesday.

If the bipartisan coronavirus aid bill gains traction in coming days, it could either be attached to the spending bill or advance on a separate track. Earlier this year, over $3 trillion in coronavirus aid was enacted, which included economic stimulus measures and money for medical supplies. State and local governments would receive direct aid under the bipartisan bill, the lawmakers said. But it is far more expensive than the $500 billion that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has been advocating. Pelosi and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin were expected to discuss coronavirus aid and the must-pass government funding bill later on Tuesday.

Both McConnell and President-elect Joe Biden separately spoke of passing a coronavirus aid bill quickly and debating an additional bill early next year to address the worst U.S. health crisis in living memory. But difficult talks over details remained with little time to spare, as Congress rushes to pass a $1.4 trillion bill by Dec. 11 to keep government agencies funded. MCCONNELL PUSHES ‘TARGETED RELIEF’McConnell said he would like to marry the funding bill with a coronavirus aid measure. Previously, Schumer and Pelosi sought a $2.2 trillion bill that McConnell rejected. Pelosi and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin were expected to discuss coronavirus aid and the must-pass government funding bill on Tuesday.

Mnuchin, Powell hone in on need to aid U.S. small businesses

Fed Chair Jerome Powell, speaking at the same hearing, said he agreed that grants would be more appropriate at this point to help at-risk businesses and families survive the winter. They may need more help to get there,” Powell said, referring to restaurants, hotels and entertainment venues that have been the hardest hit by the pandemic. “Some of these businesses - what they need is fiscal policy, a grant, to get through this last bit of the pandemic, rather than borrowing more,” Powell said. In the medium term, with a vaccine on the horizon, there is “upside risk,” Powell said, but substantial uncertainty in the meantime about how much longer some families can hold out. After weeks of deadlock over further government spending for pandemic relief, there may be renewed momentum towards some sort of deal.

WASHINGTON—House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin will talk on the phone Tuesday afternoon about coronavirus relief, restarting stalled discussions. Separately, a bipartisan group of lawmakers are rolling out a $908 billion aid proposal, according to people familiar with the plans, seeking a middle ground between Democratic and Republican leaders’ stances. The bill will include $160 billion in state and local funding. The new developments come as lawmakers start a year-end sprint this week to keep the government running, provide more coronavirus aid and pass an annual defense bill. They are also working to complete a full-year spending bill before the government’s current funding expires at 12:01 a.m. on Dec. 12.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Monday there is "no reason" Congress can't quickly agree a new round of coronavirus stimulus. Time is short: Congress is meeting for a short session due to end by Christmas, and also has to avert a government shutdown. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell acknowledged the mounting pressure to deliver another round of economic stimulus, and said there is "no reason" that it couldn't be done by the end of 2020. The last coronavirus relief package was passed in spring, and expired in July. Republicans have proposed a smaller relief package, arguing that the economy is better than expected.

He called for an "interim package" to provide support until President-elect Joe Biden takes office in January. Bipartisan lawmakers plan to unveil a coronavirus stimulus package Tuesday after months of congressional inaction on curbing the economic damage from the outbreak. Senators who have joined in the discussions about the aid proposal include Warner, Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.V., Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, and Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah. If the unemployment programs expire at the end of the year, about 12 million Americans could lose benefits. Some lawmakers could push to tie coronavirus aid provisions to a spending bill Congress needs to pass before Dec. 11 to avoid a government shutdown.

Mr. Powell, who told lawmakers that the Fed would have preferred to keep those lending programs going while acknowledging that it was Mr. Mnuchin’s place to decide, painted a more dire picture of the economic outlook. He pointed to continued uncertainty around the speed of a vaccine rollout, the reality that millions remain out of work and the fact that small businesses could fail in the winter months. “We do have a long way to go,” Mr. Powell said. The measure would provide $160 billion to help state, local and tribal governments facing fiscal ruin — a fraction of what Democrats had sought. Also included was $288 billion to help small businesses, restaurants and theaters, and a short-term federal liability shield from coronavirus-related lawsuits.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Congress on Monday began a two-week sprint to rescue the federal government from a possible shutdown amid the coronavirus pandemic, the first major test since the election of whether Republicans and Democrats intend to cooperate. Still unclear is whether Republican President Donald Trump, who was defeated in the Nov. 3 election, will cooperate with the effort underway in Congress. Trump already has warned that he would veto a wide-ranging defense authorization bill Congress aims to pass if a provision is included stripping Confederate leaders’ names from military bases. If they cannot be resolved by Dec. 11, agency shutdowns could be avoided only by Congress passing a stop-gap funding bill. Republicans have deemed that proposal exorbitant and have been sticking with calls for a scaled-down $500 billion menu of initiatives.
