COVID Relief Done, What’s Next?

President Biden and Congressional Democrats met the tight deadline of passing the massive $1.9T relief package by March 14 when the current federal unemployment benefits expire. The federal supplemental payments will stay in place until September 6 and remain at $300 a week. This of course is just a small part of the package that includes $1,400 stimulus checks, money for state and local governments, vaccine programs, child credits and much more. In the coming weeks the President, First Lady, Vice President and Second Gentleman will all be hitting the road selling the President’s relief package.

In order to avoid the unemployment cliff and prevent a Republican filibuster, Democrats used the Budget Reconciliation process. Democrats will have the opportunity to use Reconciliation again later in the year but have not yet determined what items would be included in the next budget package. The Biden Administration has not submitted its FY 2022 budget request on which the Budget Bill will be based and it will likely not be submitted until April.
