 The US House of Representatives has passed a $2.2 trillion bill to resume unemployment benefits of $600 a week


Earlier, the vote on the bill was delayed to give House speaker, California Democrat Nancy Pelosi and Treasury Secretary Steven mnuchin more time to agree on the aid package, but the talks have yet to reach a bipartisan agreement. In this regard, Pelosi said on the same day, our differences are still very big and I hope we can find common ground on this issue and do so as soon as possible.

It is understood that any agreement passed by the house of representatives must also be passed in the Senate, which is currently focusing on filling a vacancy in the U.S. Supreme Court and plans to suspend most of October.
