On Sunday, December 27, 2020, President Trump signed the FY21 Omnibus/COVID-19 Relief Legislation.
On Monday, the House voted on increasing the direct stimulus checks to $2,000 and also voted on overriding the President's veto on the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).
The Senate passed a motion to override the veto as well and Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell, R- Ky., filed cloture immediately after the vote. A final Senate vote on whether to override Trump's veto is expected by Saturday. Congress has until noon on Sunday, January 3, 2021, to act on the NDAA otherwise the new 117th Congress will need to redraft the bill.
As of late Wednesday, the fate of $2,000 stimulus checks is in peril as McConnell said the push for them has "no realistic path to quickly pass the Senate."
