A bipartisan group in the Senate today introduced a $908 billion proposal aimed at breaking the stalemate over more COVID-19 relief.

Included in the package is $35 billion for the health care provider relief fund.

The group, which is comprised of Sen. Joe Manchin III, D-W.Va., Mark R. Warner, D-Va., Bill Cassidy, R-La., Mitt Romney, R-Utah, and Susan Collins, R-Maine, among others, designed the proposal to include only $348 billion in new funding, instead opting to repurpose $560 billion from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, which Congress passed in March.
