Cuomo is giving his first COVID briefing since last month.       President Biden is green-lighting scaling back who will receive a new round of 14-hundred-dollar stimulus checks in his COVID-19 relief bill. Right now, any individual earning under 75-thousand-dollars a year and couples making less than 150-thousand will get the full amount. Under the compromise, individuals will phase out entirely at 80-thousand dollars and 160-thousand for couples.       Capitol Police say they know of, and are ready to deal with, a possible militia group plot to storm the building again tomorrow.
