Trump Signs Executive Orders To Extend COVID-19 Economic Relief, Includes Unemployment Benefits, Eviction Moratorium
President Donald Trump has signed executive orders to extend economic relief after lawmakers were unable to reach an agreement on a new stimulus package.
The orders include extending enhanced unemployment benefits and the federal eviction moratorium, imposing a payroll tax holiday and further suspending federal student loan payments.
The orders come after the late-July expiration of federal unemployment benefits and a federal eviction moratorium. Trump first announced his plans to sign executive orders to provide further economic relief during the coronavirus at a Friday night press conference.
