Representative hopes for changes in stimulus bill

Rep. Mike Gallagher says it could be a challenge for Democrats and Republicans to come together on a phase four stimulus package before their scheduled recess on August 7th. The HEALS Act proposed by the Republican-controlled Senate on Monday would send out additional $1,200 checks to qualified individuals, reduce unemployment benefits, and provide a liability shield for businesses protecting themselves from COVID-19 related lawsuits.  Rep. Gallagher says there is talk about redirecting some of the $1 trillion set aside from past stimulus packages and apply it to the needs in this bill.

Developing plans to improve social contract programs like social security and providing funds for the milk donation reimbursement programs are two items Rep. Gallagher would like to see added to the HEALS Act.
