The Trump administration and Congress are continuing negotiations on the phase four coronavirus relief bill.

It’s estimated to cost a trillion dollars.

Senate Republicans are focused on three main goals for the bill:

  • Funding to safely reopen schools.
  • Tax credits and incentives for businesses.
  • And stimulus checks to Americans.

There is one thing President Trump wants included in the bill, but Senate Republicans are against—that’s a payroll tax cut.

White House officials say an agreement on the next stimulus bill could come by the end of the month.
