(CBS Detroit) – US Senator Gary Peters says he expects Congress to approve the 1.9 trillion dollar coronavirus relief package this weekend.

Senator Gary Peters said, “It was determined based on those levels, we would still deal with the vast majority of folks in the state of Michigan, but folks at the very high, who are earning very high income and are doing well, they do not need the fourteen hundred dollar stimulus payments as other families do.”
