House Democrats focusing on phase four coronavirus relief package

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has said House Democrats could introduce a phase four coronavirus relief package as early as this week.

On Friday, President Trump said there is no rush to negotiate a phase four coronavirus relief bill.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin told Fox News on Sunday that they will take a few weeks to consider options. He says although “they’re willing to spend whatever it takes, whatever it takes needs to be done carefully.”  

Many ag groups have called for additional assistance. American Farm Bureau Chief Economist John Newton recently told Brownfield that Congress and the administration made an initial down payment for agriculture in the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program, but more must be done to address challenges related to working capital, livestock and dairy processing plant closures, and negative ethanol plant profitability.
