Who would make the cut for a second stimulus check?

Will the same people who are eligible for the first stimulus checks automatically qualify for a second stimulus check, if another round of relief payments comes to be? The question of who would and wouldn't meet the requirements has many Americans looking to the House of Representatives and the Senate for an answer.Depending on which government leader is talking, another stimulus package in 2020 could either provide more stimulus money to more people than the first one, could apply to fewer people, or might only give payments to businesses and states, with no checks for individuals at all.There's a cause for urgency in making these decisions. Coronavirus cases are skyrocketing in the US, causing numerous states to pause reopening and in some cases even backtrack. That's a blow to an economy already in recession, and to business owners and employees who can't run their operations or work. Meanwhile, benefits such as delayed eviction and enhanced unemployment are scheduled to run out in about a month, unless the government takes action.If that action includes a second stimulus check, here's the current discussion on who might or might not get one. In short, it's complicated, but here's what we know now. The situation and this story update often.

Who would qualify for another stimulus payment? The Heroes Act (PDF) passed by the House of Representatives in May proposes broad financial benefits to individuals, families and categories that were skipped by the first stimulus check, including most college students, for example, and people who aren't US citizens. But the Heroes Act has been strenuously opposed by the Senate and President Donald Trump, who called it DOA. On the other end of the spectrum, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has said that if his chamber passes another relief bill that includes more stimulus checks, the focus will be narrow. Some suggest that if there is a second stimulus payment, it should be targeted to people in most urgent need. That would mean far fewer people would receive a check or bank account deposit from the IRS.
