WV Senator Joe Manchin says $500-$1,200 Stimulus Checks May be in COVID-19 Deal

Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia said Wednesday that stimulus checks of between $500 and $1,200 may be included in the final COVID-19 relief package expected this week. The idea is supported by Republican leaders in the House and Senate and President Trump, as well as by left-wing Democrats in both chambers. It also previously has been supported in principle by Democratic leaders. Manchin is one of the authors of a $908 billion bipartisan proposal that doesn’t recommend direct checks, but he said he believes they may land in the final bill.
