Keep money for new Federal Bureau of Investigation building in coronavirus relief bill

President Donald Trump is followed by White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows as he departs for a day trip to Norfolk, Virginia, from the White House in Washington, on March 28, 2020.

The final payments of supplemental unemployment insurance that were included in the last stimulus run out this week and federal protections against evictions expired July 25.

"No deal certainly becomes a greater possibility the longer these negotiations take", he said.

"We Democrats are standing firm", the Senate minority leader added.

As the congressional debates over Covid-19 relief drag on, CNBC/Change Research polling results published Wednesday show that most voters in six key swing states want lawmakers to continue the aid that was implemented in previous coronavirus relief legislation, including the $600-per-week boost to UI. "We're not accepting that", Pelosi told reporters on Wednesday after the meeting.

While warning that a recent resurgence in COVID-19 cases are starting to weigh on USA economic recovery, Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell said that "there is a need for some additional fiscal support".

In late March, Washington enacted a wide-ranging aid bill that included $600 per week in "enhanced" unemployment benefits. He pointed to the success of the small-business Paycheck Protection Program for getting money directly to businesses that could not necessarily have been saved through a Fed lending program.

The amount of support for a short-term extension of the unemployment benefit was unclear because most Senate Republicans adamantly oppose the $600 supplement.

The Century Foundation, a progressive think tank, estimated this week that the GOP plan to reduce the federal UI boost to $200 per week would cut total weekly unemployment payments "from a national average of $920.68 per week to $520.68 per week".

Conservative Republicans quickly broke ranks arguing the spending was too much and priorities misplaced.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., center, speaks during a news conference on on Capitol Hill in Washington on Monday to highlight the Republican proposal for the next coronavirus stimulus bill.

The GOP proposal also does not include almost $875 billion that Democrats want to allocate to states and local governments in both Republican and Democratic communities, which face unprecedented budget shortfalls and have already laid off more than 1.5 million public employees, including teachers, first responders and health care workers.

While Republican support for Tata is unclear, the Republican chair of the committee, Senator Jim Inhofe, chose to move forward with a confirmation hearing. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, one of the bill's most vocal opponents, told reporters at the Capitol.

The Yale study found that people with expanded unemployment benefits actually resumed working at a similar or slightly quicker rate than others did.

"Time is running out", Pelosi said. "This proposal is not targeted to fix precise problems - it's about Democrats and Trumpers competing to outspend each other".

President Trump said money for a new Federal Bureau of Investigation building near his Washington, D.C. hotel should be included in the GOP's coronavirus relief bill. "And so, I do have a reasonable number of members who don't think we ought to do another package". "This is a complicated problem".

The project includes electrical upgrades for television appearances, two new walkways, and new flowers and shrubs, and is meant to be an "act of expressing hope and optimism for the future".
