    SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — Puerto Rico’s Supreme Court ruled Wednesday that the votes cast during a botched primary over the weekend are valid and that a second round of voting will be held Aug. 16 at centers that never opened or did not remain open for the required eight hours. The ruling was a response to five lawsuits filed after missing or delayed ballots meant that voting occurred in only about 60 of Puerto Rico’s 110 precincts Sunday. “Let’s hope that, in the name of democracy, there are no more failures, inefficiencies, errors or delays. Any other result or deviation from what is stated here would be clearly unacceptable,” the court stated. Copyright © 2020 The Associated Press. All...

    Washington (CNN)Don't expect a another stimulus check anytime soon. While there's bipartisan support for a second round of direct payments, negotiators have walked away from talks without a deal, and most lawmakers have now returned to their home states. Congress let three key coronavirus relief programs created in March -- enhanced unemployment benefits, eviction protection and a small business loan program -- expire during the past two weeks. In the meantime, the economy is showing few signs of recovering from the pandemic. Thirty million people are collecting unemployment, consumer spending is down 8% from January and the number of open small businesses has fallen 18%. The unemployment rate remains higher than at any time during the Great Recession.While President Donald...

    Getty Will there be a second COVID-19 stimulus check, but what would it look like, and what is the HEALS Act? President Donald Trump, in a hastily called news conference on the evening of August 7, announced a series of COVID-19 relief measures that he plans to take in the coming days. However, what a lot of people are wondering: Did he say he’d approve a second round of COVID-19 stimulus checks? The answer is no. The president left COVID-19 stimulus checks off the list of things he’s planning to approve via executive order. That may be because he doesn’t have a choice due to the limitations on executive order powers. Congress has funding authority, and unless Trump...

    Stimulus Check Negotiations around the next stimulus package stalled on Friday, August 7, CNN reports. After five days of lengthy conversations, Republican and Democrat lawmakers are no closer to an agreement on the next stimulus package, which means that the next stimulus check has not been approved.

    Getty There will likely be a second round of COVID-19 stimulus checks. Millions of Americans are getting anxious for a second COVID-19 stimulus check. Republicans and Democrats broadly agree that people meeting certain income guidelines should receive a second check, but it never seems to come. How soon would you get a second check?

They’ve agreed on stimulus checks, but they’ve remained at loggerheads over other aspects of the package, such as the extension of extra $600 weekly unemployment benefits, which have expired. You won’t get a second check until the two parties agree on the broader package details,...

Although other amounts have also been floated, a group of Republican senators has proposed a compromise during negotiations for the second stimulus relief plan.
