House and Senate negotiations continue in Washington, although they appear to have reached a deadlock. The President released 4 executive orders earlier this week attempting to put pressure on the negotiators, but so far little has changed. The House is still looking for a $3 trillion plus stimulus package while the Senate is aiming for $1 trillion. The parties are still very far apart, and negotiations continue throughout the week. While there is strong COVID liability protection language in the Senate package; the House leadership remains opposed. Stay tuned for further updates at the Govt. Affairs Townhall with Rep. Sylvia Garcia on Friday, August 14 at 9am.
