A bipartisan group of lawmakers unveiled a $908 billion stimulus proposal on Tuesday, in a last-ditch effort to get a bill passed this year.

The group dubbed the “problem solvers caucus,” which includes Senators Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), Mitt Romney (R-Utah), and Susan Collins (R-Maine), offered a framework for an emergency-relief funding bill meant to aid individuals and small businesses through April 1.

The bill provides $300 a week in federal unemployment benefits for 18 weeks–offering support to gig workers, among others–and would be retroactive to December 1. It also supplies $288 billion in aid for small business programs, including the now-expired Paycheck Protection Program and the Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) program, due to sunset on December 31.

As the uprising spurred by George Floyd’s killing continues to reverberate, a new coalition of Washington business and philanthropy leaders says it aims to spend $2 billion over the next five years to advance racial equity.

Nearly 60 executives have so far joined the group, Washington Employers for Racial Equity, including the CEOs of some of the state’s most prominent organizations, such as Microsoft, Nordstrom, Boeing, Costco, Windermere Services Co. and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. (Seattle Times Publisher and CEO Frank Blethen is also a member.)

Still, it’s trying to get better. Or, at least, stickier. We’ll get back to that part in a minute.

In a blog post about the acquisition, Facebook says
