Congressional lawmakers are expected to weigh another economic spending bill in late next month.Lawmakers could also consider extending unemployment benefits, more support for small businesses and funding for states and cities.There is broad agreement something must be done, but Republicans are divided on the specifics.There’s also disagreement among Republicans about whether the next set of moves should include more direct stimulus payments.last_img
