2. Not directly, but did extend the CARES Act deadline....

That money doesn't evaporate at the end of the year. It's extended to the end of 2021. Possibly, a backdoor method of helping out states and localities if they haven't spent it already. But, the devil is in the details. What existing and new strings are now attached that could make spending it more difficult? Vermont has had to scramble to come up with creative ways to use the funding and still remain within the rules. Almost a "thanks for nothing" kind of deal.

4. More from the same article

Negotiators have decided to provide stimulus checks worth $600 per person. The size of that benefit would be reduced for people who earned more than $75,000 the preceding year, similar to the last round of stimulus checks, according to two people who spoke on the condition of anonymity to share details of private deliberations. The stimulus checks would provide $600 per person, including adults and children, meaning a family of four would receive $2,400 up to a certain income.

6. Starting at $75,000 it gets reduced, and individuals who earn more than $99,000 won't get a

stimulus check.
