Stimulus plan debate likely next week

Residents in Door and Kewaunee Counties may soon see the benefits of another stimulus plan in the coming weeks. According to Newsweek, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his fellow Republicans in the chamber will unveil their plans for another coronavirus relief package. House Democrats unveiled a similar HEROES Act bill in May, but it has received little support from the Senate and the Trump Administration. Both proposals could include another stimulus check to qualified individuals who are in lower-income levels. Wisconsin U.S. Senator Ron Johnson says some innovation is needed to make sure funding goes to small businesses struggling to get back on their feet.

Senator Johnson says the first stimulus bill was needed but imperfect. He would like to see the over one trillion dollars not obligated get used before more money is proposed for another economic relief package.
