(Mar. 5) Watch live as Republican Senator Lindsay Graham of South Carolina holds a news conference on Capitol Hill on Friday, March 5, 2021, in Washington, D.C. The Senate’s votes on amendments to the pandemic-relief bill stalled Friday afternoon as negotiations continued on the details of supplemental jobless benefits. Lawmakers still expect the legislation to pass in the chamber over the weekend. While Senate Democrats looked to have sealed a deal on the length and amount of enhanced unemployment benefits earlier in the day, talks continued on the sidelines Friday afternoon. Majority Leader Chuck Schumer pledged the Senate will “power through” the arduous final process of getting President Joe Biden’s first signature piece of legislation passed. The Senate is embroiled in the amendment-proposal stage known as the vote-a-rama. The House will need to vote on the Senate’s version, with Democratic leaders pledging final passage by March 14, when current supplemental jobless benefits expire.
