WASHINGTON

Congressional leaders set to meet this week to talk about America’s 3rd round of Coronavirus relief and a first major legislative challenge for President Biden.

Senate majority leader Chuck Schumer is looking to be ready for a vote as early as this Tuesday and are looking for bi-partisan support from republicans for the 1.9 trillion dollar package.

Part of that plan includes $400 billion dollars to expand vaccinations and to reopen schools, $1,400 direct payments to households, and other priorities, including a gradual increase in the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour.
