(WHEC) — News10NBC has gotten a lot of questions about the potential for another round of stimulus checks, so we looked into how long it could take before Americans get another.
The House passed what they're calling the "Heroes Act" last week.
It calls for another round of $1,200 stimulus checks.
However, Senate Republicans are not embracing the proposal.
Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Thursday, the next bill would not extend the $600 unemployment benefit to January as Democrats wanted.
The Senate will not be in session this coming week, and one congressional timeline estimates it could take up to five months after a bill passes for all of the new checks to land.
