California lawmakers propose state unemployment benefits if federal aid expires

Stimulus check or unemployment boost? What’s the best way to support coronavirus economy

"Leader McConnell and his Republican caucus [are] certainly at the top of the list", the New York Democrat said, adding, "It's clear that Senate Republicans don't have a unified position on anything".

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to damage the California economy, state lawmakers are weighing whether to provide a supplemental unemployment benefit with the extra $600 per week provided by the federal government expiring this month.

Speaking at the White House, Trump signaled his interest in reaching a deal and preventing an eviction crisis.

Senate Republicans unveiled a $1 trillion coronavirus stimulus package Monday and then spent Tuesday fighting about how awful it is, making it very clear that any sort of much-needed financial relief isn't going to come any time soon, not until we've gone through a few weeks of arguing.

McConnell is taking flak from the left and right, with Democrats saying the spending isn't enough and GOP hardliners saying it's too much, per Politico.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, who is leading the negotiations, said "the president is very focused" on unemployment aid and assistance for renters.

Mnuchin had previously claimed that Senate Republicans and the White House were "completely on the same page" regarding the stimulus package during an interview with Fox News' Chris Wallace.

McConnell insisted no bill will pass without a sweeping liability shield for doctors, businesses and schools reopening.

Senate Republicans on Tuesday continued to distance themselves from a proposal to fund the construction of a new Federal Bureau of Investigation headquarters in their $1 trillion coronavirus relief package, an unrelated provision pushed by President Donald Trump and criticized by Democrats, who claim the effort is aimed at protecting the president's financial interests.

McConnell said GOP leaders did their best to craft a package that the broadest group of Republicans could support, but acknowledged his party is divided.

The report also said that KK Singh has expressed his inability to go to Mumbai to fight the case due to his health issues. Rajput starred in films like Shuddh Desi Romance, Raabta, Kedarnath, Chhichhore and Sonchiriya .

Although the Homebase data does not represent the entire US labor market, as it is primarily focused on hourly workers at businesses like bars, restaurants, and retail stores, the segment of the workforce studied by the researchers has been disproportionately impacted by the pandemic.

With the virus death toll climbing and 4.2 million infections nationwide, both parties are eager for relief.

States experiencing surges, like Florida, Texas and Southern California, were forced to reinstate partial or, in some cases, full lockdowns, furthering economic struggles among populations in those regions.

Money borrowed from the federal unemployment trust fund is paid back with higher taxes on employers in future years. Among the issues sure to gather momentum is a Democratic demand for a 15% increase in food stamp benefits - an idea that could gain more momentum as a counter to reduced unemployment checks.

"The American people don't call that a controversy, they call that common sense", McConnell said.

Johnson's proposal would give Americans 66 per cent of their wages - or some other amount less than the previous $600 boost.

Republicans rapidly criticized the provision less than a day after the legislation was unveiled.

Host Sandra Smith noted that White House chief of staff Mark Meadows said Republicans and Democrats are nowhere close to a deal on a new coronavirus relief package, while Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said about 20 Republican senators think that there has already been enough stimulus. There's also no protection against evictions for renters, something Democrats have been fighting to keep while Trump, weirdly, blames them for its absence. Democrats proposed almost $1 trillion to avert municipal layoffs, but Republicans prefer providing them with flexibility in previously approved aid.

It found that building a new headquarters on the same site would end up costing more than moving it out of town. They won't engage when the administration tries to discuss our comprehensive plan.
