A bipartisan group of lawmakers from both the senate and house, including South Dakota’s Dusty Johnson have come out with a compromise proposal for COVID-19 relief. Republican senator Mitt Romney spoke at a press conference about the bill which proposes $908 billion in spending that would include an additional $228 billion into the paycheck protection program. State and local governments would receive aid under this bill as well, but not included was direct stimulus checks to American citizens. US treasury secretary Steve Mnuchin and House speaker Nancy Pelosi are scheduled to meet Tuesday. The two have not negotiated on COVID-19 relief since before the Nov. 3rd election.
