Negotiations on the new economic rescue, and with it the second stimulus check, are still at a standstill, here are the key dates to bear in mind.
Negotiations for the next economic rescue continue to be stalled, as Republicans and Democrats have failed to reach a bipartisan agreement. In fact, Congress (the Senate and the House of Representatives) has opted to take the famous “August Recess”, so meetings have been postponed once again.
It was only because of the dissent between Republicans and Democrats that the President of the United States, Donald Trump, decided to take matters into his own hands and sign a series of executive orders with relief for the coronavirus, which will extend unemployment aid, the cancellation of student loans, the moratorium on evictions and the suspension of payroll taxes.
However, benefits such as a second stimulus check have been left out of Donald Trump’s orders, as the President does not have the authority to dispose of federal funds, as, according to the Constitution, this is the duty of Congress.
Second Stimulus Check: September 8 and 14, key dates for second round of payments
With the negotiations on the new economic rescue stalled, millions of Americans are hanging on by a thread, as many are waiting for the second stimulus check, which is why we leave you with the key dates to take into account regarding the negotiation of the new package.
According to official reports, the Senate will return from the August recess on September 8, while the House of Representatives will do so until the 14th; therefore, if the new economic rescue is approved in the first 15 days of the aforementioned month, check distribution will most likely begin until September 28, otherwise it could go as far as October.
