Will There Be Another COVID-19 Federal Aid Package?
A look at what legislators are debating – and whether or not another fiscal deal is forthcoming.
- If legislators are able to reach a consensus, it may not be until late September or early October. The longer it takes to reach an agreement, the more any additional federal aid payments to consumers and the unemployed will be delayed.
- The question of how much aid – if any – to provide to state and local governments remains a sticking point.
- A compromise could provide dollars for specific sectors of state and local economies, specifically healthcare and education.
