Top Democratic lawmakers are set to release more details on President Biden's $1.9 trillion COVID relief plan Monday.
It's expected to include new measures to give some families at least $3,000. Republicans have said the bill is too big.
President Biden says he's open to negotiating some parts, but help is needed now.
"If I have to choose between getting help right now to Americans who are hurting so badly and getting bogged down in a lengthy negotiation or compromise on a bill that's that's up to the crisis, that's an easy choice. I'm going to help the American people who are hurting now," Biden said.
A reminder of what the president's proposal includes: He wants $1,400 direct payments for most Americans, but he said he'd be willing to narrow who got those checks to cut out higher-income individuals.
The deal would also include money for vaccination efforts and rental assistance and it would extend an eviction moratorium through September.
