There's a vote set up in the Senate Tuesday but still no deal reached on further COVID-19 economic relief.
CNBC reports negotiations were closing in on a package that could include another $370 billion for small business loans to keep employees paid.
There was also talk of $75 billion for hospitals and $25 billion for more testing. Though, Democrats want more money for state and local governments.
“At this hour, our Democratic colleagues are still prolonging their discussions with the administration, so the Senate regretfully will not be able to pass more funding for Americans’ paychecks today,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said a Monday afternoon session.
The initial $350 billion for small business loans that was included in the previously passed $2 trillion stimulus bill had been completely spoken for by last week - though, some have yet to see the money.
