COVID-19 Package to Go Before Senate in February, Chuck Schumer Says

A new round of COVID-19 economic relief that would include aid for hard-hit transportation systems will be up for consideration in early February, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer indicated Jan. 28.

The $1.9 trillion aid package proposed by President Joe Biden would provide $20 billion for struggling transit systems, as well as $350 billion for state and local governments afflicted by the economic downturn. Schumer and other lawmakers argue myriad sectors are desperately in need of more emergency aid.
