SHOW TRANSCRIPT

House Democrats unveiled a new COVID-19 relief bill.

The proposal is worth $2.2 trillion. It would reintroduce a weekly $600 boost to unemployment benefits and includes another $1,200 payment to most Americans.

The new proposal is scaled back compared to the bill that was passed in May — an earlier version that would have cost $3.4 trillion.

There is still no sign a bill will pass. Democrats and Republicans have not made any progress for weeks.

Republicans say they won't endorse a bill that costs more than $1 trillion.
