Tomorrow: House to vote on COVID relief
The House is now expected to take a final vote on Wednesday morning to clear the $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief package.
Lawmakers had initially been expected to vote on Tuesday to send the legislation to President Biden for his signature. But the House just received bill processing papers from the Senate on Tuesday morning, which slightly delayed the initially anticipated timeline.
The House will take a procedural vote later Tuesday on the legislation, with a final passage vote on Wednesday morning, Majority Leader Steny Hoyer‘s (D-Md.) office said.
The massive package, which runs hundreds of pages, includes a third round of stimulus checks, an extension of the weekly $300 unemployment insurance boost and billions in funding for vaccine distribution and COVID-19 testing efforts.
