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 MnuchinMcConnell focuses on confirming judicial nominees with COVID-19 talks stalled Hillicon Valley: FBI chief says Russia is trying to interfere in election to undermine Biden | Treasury Dept. sanctions Iranian government-backed hackers On the Money: Pelosi draws line at .2T | Jobless claims dip | Swing-state jobless numbers an issue for Trump 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.
