Ongoing negotiations between lawmakers and the Trump administration on the coronavirus stimulus bill are expected to dominate the Sunday Show circuit this week, as talks spill over into next week. 

Trump administration officials, including Treasury Secretary Steven MnuchinSteven Terner MnuchinOvernight Health Care: Senate leaves until September without coronavirus relief deal | US records deadliest day of summer | Georgia governor drops lawsuit over Atlanta's mask mandate Senate leaves until September without coronavirus relief deal Federal agencies seize, dismantle cryptocurrency campaigns of major terrorist organizations MORE, met with Democratic leaders on Saturday saying they made “progress” but have still not reached an agreement. 

The main dispute is about the amount of money to spend: Senate Republicans have introduced a roughly $1 trillion package, while the bill passed by House Democrats in May rang in at roughly $3 trillion. 

They also disagree about providing additional money for cash-strapped state and local governments who have depleted their budgets fighting the coronavirus. The final issue, and perhaps the most urgent, is how to replace beefed up unemployment benefits, which expired Friday night. 

A handful of negotiators are scheduled to appear on cable talk shows this week, with both Mnuchin and House Speaker Nancy PelosiNancy PelosiSusan Collins asks postmaster general to address delays of 'critically needed mail' Trump says he'd sign bill funding USPS but won't seek changes to help mail voting On The Money: Senate leaves until September without coronavirus relief agreement | Weekly jobless claims fall below 1 million for first time since March | Trump says no Post Office funding means Democrats 'can't have universal mail-in voting' MORE (D-Calif.) booked on ABC’s “This Week” and White House chief of staff Mark MeadowsMark Randall MeadowsOvernight Health Care: Senate leaves until September without coronavirus relief deal | US records deadliest day of summer | Georgia governor drops lawsuit over Atlanta's mask mandate Senate leaves until September without coronavirus relief deal Pelosi: COVID talks will resume when GOP offers T MORE booked on CBS' “Face the Nation.”
