Johnson says next stimulus bill needs to be more targeted

WASHINGTON, D.C. (WNAX) – Members of Congress will attempt again this week to come up with an agreement on the next round of economic stimulus payments, after failing to find a compromise this week.

South Dakota Congressman Dusty Johnson says the next bill needs to be more targeted.

Johnson says more money should go to healthcare.

The $600 per week additional unemployment payments end this week. Johnson says he could support a lower number.

House Democrats are backing a $3 trillion plan while Senate Republicans are talking about spending about $1 trillion.
