Second $1,200 Stimulus Check Included in Proposal From Centrist Lawmakers to Break Stalemate Between GOP, Democrats

The Problem Solvers Caucus proposed a $1.52 trillion package in hopes of breaking Congress stalemate over coronavirus relief funds.

A bipartisan group of about 50 centrist Democrats and Republicans lawmakers are proposing a second round of $1,200 stimulus checks, with an additional $500 per child, in a new bill.

The Problem Solvers Caucus offered its own coronavirus relief bill on Tuesday as negotiations between House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the White House continue to stall, leaving millions of Americans with no federal funding as the coronavirus pandemic continues.

The group, led by Representatives Democrat Josh Gottheimer of New Jersey and Republican Tom Reed of New York, is proposing a $1.52 trillion package, almost a trillion less than Pelosi’s latest demands but significantly more than the GOP’s bill that offered roughly $500 billion.
