Pelosi to have House vote on new stimulus package today that could send $1,200 checks to Americans THIS MONTH

NANCY Pelosi is set to have the House vote on a new stimulus package today that could kickstart new $1,200 checks getting sent to Americans this month.

The House Speaker initially planned for the vote to be held on Wednesday, but postponed it to continue talks with Mnuchin on Thursday morning.

If a deal is agreed upon and the House passes it by October 2, for instance, some Americans could potentially get the second stimulus check as early as October 12.

The vote will come just one day after Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin proposed a $1.62trillion relief bill.

The deal includes $250billion funding for state and local governments and $400 federal unemployment benefits, Roll Call reported.

“The president instructed us to come up significantly, so we have come up from the trillion dollar deal,” Mnuchin said.

The White House’s offer also includes $1,200 stimulus checks, $150billion for education funding, $75billion for coronavirus testing and tracing, $50billion for vaccine production and distribution, $50billion for hospitals and health care workers, $15billion for food assistance and $10billion for the US Postal Service.

Pelosi tweeted on Wednesday: “Today, @stevenmnuchin1 and I had an extensive conversation and we found areas where we are seeking further clarification. Our conversation will continue.”

She added in another tweet: “The House will be proceeding with our vote tonight on the updated #HeroesAct in order to formalize our proffer to Republicans in the negotiations to address the health and economic catastrophe in our country.”

The talks between Mnuchin and Pelosi came months after the Heroes Act was passed in the House in May.
