BIPARTISAN GROUP OF SENATORS ANNOUNCE COVID-19 RELIEF BILL: A group of bipartisan lawmakers, including Sens. Joe Manchin (D-WV), Chris Coons (D-DE), Susan Collins (R-ME), Mark Warner (D-VA), and Mitt Romney (R-UT), alongside members of the House of Representatives, hold a press conference to unveil their $908 billion stimulus proposal to combat the COVID-19 pandemic. As relief negotiations between the White House and Speaker Nancy Pelosi remain at a standstill, these bipartisan members of Congress hope that their proposal will garner enough support from both sides to pass before the end of the calendar year. The bill includes Democratic and Republican proposals, like an additional $300 a week in federal unemployment benefits for four more months, $240 billion in funding for state and local governments, and a six-month moratorium on some coronavirus-related lawsuits against businesses and other entities. ‘Both sides are going to have to compromise,’ Sen. Warner told MSNBC after the package was first announced. ‘The Democrats aren’t going to get what they want with their $2 trillion plan, and clearly the so-called skinny plan that Leader McConnell put out is not nearly enough to provide a bridge.’
