Aug. 10, 2020—The White House and Democratic congressional leaders have failed to reach an agreement on a new stimulus relief bill, reports FOX 23.

According to the report, the meeting last Thursday marked the ninth time that congressional leaders have met in the past two weeks. And by now, the failure to come to an agreement raises concerns that another relief bill will be provided.

Back in May, the House passed a $3.4 trillion bill called the Health and Economic Recovery Omnibus Emergency Solutions (HEROES) Act, while the Senate recently introduced a series of bills known as the Health, Economic Assistance, Liability Protection, and Schools (HEALS) Act, which adds up to about $1 trillion.

Neither have been fully passed into law.
