A bipartisan group of House and Senate lawmakers Tuesday announced a $908 billion coronavirus aid proposal that attempts to end a monthslong stalemate in Congress that so far has blocked a new round of funding.
“It’s not going to make everybody happy,” said Sen. Mark Warner, a Virginia Democrat. “But I think it is a good framework.”
The measure has the backing of the 50-member, bipartisan House Problem Solvers Caucus, as well as a significant group of senators in both parties.
It’s larger than a $500 billion measure Republicans were seeking by far less costly than a $2.2 trillion bill
