Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer suggested that negotiators were making progress and Congress could vote on a $900 billion stimulus package as early as Sunday. 

Speaking to reporters on Capitol Hill late Saturday night, Schumer said Republicans and Democrats were “getting very close” to a deal. 

“If things continue on this path and nothing gets in the way, we’ll be able to vote tomorrow,” he said.

Congress approved a two-day funding extension on Friday to avoid a government shutdown and buy more time for the negotiations.

The package is expected to include $600 stimulus checks, $300 federal unemployment details ⇒
