An administration official said the package could include: $500 billion to $550 billion in direct payments or tax cuts, $200 billion to $300 billion in small business assistance, and $50 billion to $100 billion in airline and industry relief. Potentially $250 billion of the package could go toward making direct payments to Americans, a White House official told The Wall Street Journal on Tuesday. Mnuchin said earlier Tuesday that the administration wants to get emergency funds in Americans' pockets "immediately.''


Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer's office said Monday that he will put forth his own plan with at least $750 billion in spending to combat the coronavirus pandemic. It would include forbearance on federal loans, a moratorium on evictions and foreclosures, assistance for small businesses and emergency child care.
