(Mar. 5) Republicans are down by one vote as the Senate remained stalled while Democrats haggled over a deal on unemployment aid. President Joe Biden made public appeals on Friday for passage of his $1.9 trillion pandemic-relief bill, meeting with potential recipients of stimulus checks and highlighting continuing damage in the labor market. Negotiations among senators continued on the details of supplemental jobless benefits, though lawmakers still expect the legislation to pass in the chamber over the weekend. Majority Leader Chuck Schumer pledged the Senate will “power through” the arduous final process of getting 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. --- Subscribe to our YouTube channel: https://bit.ly/2TwO8Gm Bloomberg Quicktake brings you live global news and original shows spanning business, technology, politics and culture.
