Democratic congressional leaders took the first step toward passing a sweeping coronavirus relief bill without GOP support as President Joe Biden on Monday listened to a much smaller plan from Republicans. The Republican lawmakers on Sunday put forward a $618 billion counteroffer to Biden’s $1.9 trillion rescue package. The GOP proposal would send a smaller $1,000 direct payment to many Americans, and extend a smaller $300 per week federal unemployment benefits boost and only until June 30. Biden left the door open to passing a bill without Republicans if he cannot reach a bipartisan deal.

Travelers on planes and public transportation are required to wear face masks, starting Tuesday. To curb the spread of Covid, the CDC issued the mask-wearing rule late Friday, building on executive action announced by Biden on Jan. 21. The enforcement, which could include fines, will be handled by the TSA and other federal, state and local authorities. The order extends to waiting areas such as airports, train platforms and subway stations. Airlines already require masks and have banned more than 2,000 passengers for refusing to wear one.

The national average price of gasoline is up one-tenth of a cent at $2.424 per gallon.
