DescriptionThe federal government will pay the full salaries of furloughed workers for up to four months under an emerging stimulus deal expected to get a vote as soon as Tuesday.

The proposal would allow furloughed workers to continue to collect health benefits from employers and a salary from the government.

Schumer said Democrats are also pleased with funding for hospitals, which sources say will be $100 billion, and an inspector general and oversight board for a $500 billion corporate credit program that will be run by the Treasury Department and allow the Federal Reserve to inject more than $4 trillion into the economy and credit markets.
