A group of 10 Senate Republicans released new details of their roughly $618 billion relief proposal Monday, including a round of $1,000 direct checks for many adults, ahead of a meeting later in the day with President Biden.
The GOP proposal, roughly one-third the size of Mr. Biden’s $1.9 trillion plan, would provide $300 a week in enhanced federal unemployment benefits through June, includes $20 billion each for child care and schools, $50 billion for small-business relief, and $160 billion for vaccines, testing, and protective equipment, according to a summary of the proposal’s spending released Monday morning.
The group of Republicans sent a letter to Mr. Biden on Sunday, requesting a meeting to try to find a bipartisan compromise as Democrats prepared to move forward this week with a process that would enable them to pass a larger relief package without GOP support. The White House said Sunday night that Mr. Biden would meet with the GOP group Monday evening.
