U.S. House Poised to Pass $1.9 Trillion COVID-19 Relief Bill on Tuesday

House Democrats are expected to pass the final version of a $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package on Tuesday.

The Senate voted 50-49 to approve the plan on Saturday, with all Democrats voting in support of the measure — and all Republicans opposed — following a marathon debate of more than 24 hours.

The colossal package would bring a new round of payments to Americans still battling against the economic impacts of the coronavirus pandemic, and it includes an increase to the child tax credit and an extension of supplemental unemployment benefits through September 6, 2021.

Democrats are eager to get the final bill to Biden’s desk for his signature before current federal unemployment benefits expire on March 14.

In a statement on Saturday, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer said he expects the president to be able to sign the legislation early this week.
