Late last week we began to get word from our contacts on the Hill that the House of Representatives has been in communication with the White House and talks have resumed on a possible 4th COVID relief package before Congress’ election recess. Speaker Pelosi has indicated that the House will vote on a compromise COVID relief bill sometime this week, we are hearing that the bill will be around $2.4 trillion ($1 trillion LESS than the HEROES Act that the House passed in May). The White House has also raised their bottom line, something that they had not done all summer, up from $1 trillion to $1.5 trillion, so there is movement. We are still unsure of the true viability of the package, but we need to push hard right now.
