House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) reportedly told lawmakers on Tuesday that the House would not leave for the November election before moving forward on another coronavirus stimulus bill. "We have to stay here until we have a bill," Pelosi reportedly said on a call. A bipartisan group of House lawmakers are set to unveil a $1.5 trillion coronavirus relief bill later on Tuesday, an effort to find a compromise after months of talks collapsed without a follow-up bill to the CARES Act that provided relief for unemployed Americans and stimulus measures as the economy continues to struggle amid the pandemic. The new bill includes another round of direct payments and boosted jobless benefits. Republicans previously pushed a $500 billion bill, while Democrats wanted a $3.4 trillion stimulus plan.
