He has said relief needs to pass before 2021 and that it needs to be targeted.

Basics of his proposal:

-It includes liability protections and promotes people going back to work.

-It extends PUA and PEUC by one month and then phases it out (with no new claims allowed) over the next 2 months. It adds additional requirements of proof to PUA claims.
