Key Highlights
Nearly $900B bipartisan breakthrough after months of bickering“…far from perfect, but it will deliver emergency relief to a nation in the throes of a genuine emergency”Summary of what known so far
It’s taken months and months, along with much suffering, to come to some sort of bipartisan agreement on a second COVID relief package but it’s here.  This package totals nearly $900B to include $600 direct payments to qualifying Americans, a $300 boost in unemployment benefits and funding for small business aid and vaccine distribution.

This relief package is only the second major legislation in response to the COVID pandemic since March when the $2T CARES Act was passed.  There are some glaring omissions within this package that lawmakers had to remove in order to achieve this compromise measure…sizable aid to cash-strapped state and local governments and a sweeping liability shield to protect businesses from COVID-related lawsuits.  Additionally, Republicans had to vastly scale back demands that would have prevented the chair of the Federal Reserve from establishing similar CARES Act-like facilities to appropriate aid.
Here’s what we know about this legislation at this point in time:
Direct stimulus payments of $600 to adults earning up to $75,000Revived lapsed supplemental federal unemployment benefits at $300/week for 11 weeksContinue and expand federal payments (unspecified) for gig workers and freelancers and extend payments to workers whose benefits have expiredMore than $284B for businessesRevival of Paycheck Protection Program and expand its eligibility to include nonprofits, local Key Highlights
