It is seven forty now I. K. L. I. F. one one stimulus package is done and the money is on its way to Americans but Congress apparently isn't done now they're working on another two trillion dollar package focusing on infrastructure our lead the Kenyan joins us live now from Capitol Hill with the very latest good morning Linda good morning to you good morning to you I hope everyone is well yes us so far so good so what specifically would be included in this package well this is one of those moments where that long awaited word freezer should say infrastructure week they actually occur Cynthia the president took office every week with the almost it almost became an inside joke if this infrastructure week was last week infrastructure week well now we think we're actually going to have an infrastructure week and that means that the president and the Congress may actually be singing from the same song sheet on this one because interest rates are so low right now the president tweeted and then mentioned in his briefing yesterday that this would be a great time to stimulate the economy through a another two trillion or so stimulus package to finally address roads bridges tunnels and house speaker Nancy Pelosi says I agreed that I really think this is going to be infrastructure week and we need to get this in our next in Mueller's package and she's including things like water projects and broadband and schools a whole host of things that need some upgrades and maintenance and the basic ground up construction so that the this is one of those rare moments where the house speaker and the president the United States have Delaware allies in each other yeah I think the whole thing out somewhere because I don't think I've ever heard and Nancy Pelosi agrees when it comes to something president trump said Linda so what could some of the sticking points be there because we saw in the in the last US package a couple of sticking points especially coming from a speaker Pelosi what could be some of the the hang ups this time right now it looks oddly they hang up seems to be a Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell he is saying that we need to let the other stimulus packages take root we need to let them grow and see how they work out before we start launching into stimulus four point oh and right now around three point no so he says first your cool our heels for awhile and and then let this take root and of course the he says getting some push back honestly from the president and the the the Senate Majority Leader is a strong ally of the president this is a very odd picture that is beginning to take form I'm curious how everyone is communicating on Capitol Hill because I would imagine they're not having their normal meetings because they need to have social distancing so that using zoom like the rest of us are they using facetime I mean what are they doing it's kind of odd they're all back in their home districts right now they're having conference calls they had a number of news conferences that I have is zero in on they are using zoom and it's it's funny because you get to see various senators and congressmen in their living rooms or their home offices or what have you and they're all in different states and you've got your you know eight screens are still up there like the opening sequence from the Brady bunch and Leslie okay it's sad but it's working it's it's almost a and even in a better way of communicating because you have a better chance of actually getting into question this is some of this will stick you know maybe it'll it'll it'll hang around you know you know we are starting to think that the new normal is not going to be anything like the old normal and the way of doing business is is not only on of it in Congress in Washington but nationwide you know what everybody who is able to work from home working from home by the way that does put a strain on the broad band which was adapted not infrastructure four point L. us yeah people are looking at things through a completely different lands these days and it is even Congress which says state and so into the steeped in the traditions and when the Senate Majority Leader said no we're not going to do remote voting well maybe after this experience the whole concept of remote voting might actually start to take full all right Linda stay well in the Kenyan love this morning from Capitol Hill coming up something you can do from home it.
