Joe Biden is already eyeing another COVID-19 stimulus package, just after helping push through a massive $1.9 trillion bill.

In an interview on Sunday, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said the Biden administration is planning to propose a package focused on recovery.

“When the president advocated for the American Rescue Plan, he talked about this being two stages, rescue then recovery,” Psaki stated.

Psaki added Biden will unveil part of that plan this week, which will focus on infrastructure.
