Description

House Democrats plan to move forward with a $3 trillion bill for additional coronavirus relief, following up on the historic $2 trillion aid package passed in March. It prioritizes granting hazard pay to front-line workers and providing aid to state and local governments, which had not been allotted in previous bills. It is seen as an opening salvo in a long series of negotiations on the next relief package.

This episode: campaign correspondent Asma Khalid, congressional editor Deirdre Walsh, and national political correspondent Mara Liasson.
