WASHINGTON (AP) — A new COVID-19 relief bill shaping up in Congress includes individual payments reaching $600 for most Americans and an extra $300 a week in unemployment benefits.
Votes on the bill in the House and Senate are expected Monday.
The COVID bill would pump $900 billion into relief efforts.
Among those getting help are hard-hit businesses, schools, health care providers and renters facing eviction.
Another part of the massive combo measure is a $1.4 trillion government-wide funding plan that would keep the government open through next September.
President-elect Joe Biden praised the bipartisan spirit behind the legislation.
