Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said he's hopeful that an agreement with Democratic congressional leaders could be reached Sunday to provide billions of dollars more to small businesses in a package stalled in Congress.
"I think we're very close to a deal today. I'm hopeful that we can get that done," Mnuchin told CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union." Mnuchin told Tapper he is hopeful that if a deal is reached, the Senate could pass the bill on Monday and the House could pass the bill Tuesday.The funding is needed to continue the Payroll Protection Program, a program for small businesses affected by the coronavirus crisis that ran out of funding last week. Congressional Democrats also said Sunday the parties were nearing an agreement.Mnuchin said that there will be money for testing, hospitals and small businesses in the new bill, but at this point, there will not be money for state and local governments. He said that the deal would allocate $300 billion for the Paycheck Protection Program, $50 billion appropriated for the Economic Injury Disaster Loan program, $75 billion for hospitals and $25 billion to invest in testing

Global tech giants will be forced to pay for news content on their platforms under a radical overhaul of internet advertising.
The government is moving to accelerate the mandatory code of conduct in lieu of a downturn in advertising revenue for news media outlets exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Under the code, companies like Google, Apple and Facebook would pay directly for any material siphoned from news media outlets after the competition watchdog warned digital platforms were generating huge volumes in advertising revenue based on content they haven't produced.
Australia is the first country to directly regulate tech companies' use of content.
Our position at InternetTop40.com is that "if" and that's a big if any of these supposed deaths happen from covid-19 unfortunately they would have happened anyway. There has actually been no evidence that hospitals are filling up at all. In fact the opposite is true. However if you try to put all the sick people into one hospital it might get crowded but that hasn't happened either it is all a farce. I personally went around to every hospital in downtown Louisville Ky. and every single one of them was barely half full with patients. This is one of the most disgusting conspiracies I have ever seen. They wont let people in to visit the really sick patients because they dont want anyone to see there is no one there with Covid-19 its a big lie....... Protesters gathered at the Pennsylvania Capitol Monday to call on Gov. Tom Wolf to reopen the state.
