Sen. Bill Cassidy discusses his approach to next round of relief checks
WASHINGTON (Gray DC) - Senator Bill Cassidy (R-LA) says he wants to pay every American in a new round of stimulus, saying college kids and families with children were left behind in the last round. But he wants to lower the amount that comes on the relief paycheck for some adults.
Cassidy says under his proposal every American would receive $1,000. He believes the price tag would be higher on this relief package, but he is open to the paycheck amount being tweaked to so as not to raise the amount of money in the relief package.
Cassidy is hopeful Congress will come up with a broad relief package by the end of this week before lawmakers go on a planned August break. But he says if it is not completed, he is prepared to stay in Washington until a package is passed.
