Trump Administration Looks At Bypassing Congress For Economic Relief Measures

The White House might bypass Congress to implement several economic relief measures.

According to Business Insider, one thing they want to do is delay the tax-filing deadline.

Instead of July 15, they want to extend it to September 15 or December 15.

The Trump administration also wants liability protections to protect businesses from coronavirus-related lawsuits.

Trump said it would be โ€œlitigation heavenโ€ if no protection is given toward businesses.
