Pelosi Says House Will Pass Biden's $1.9 Trillion Stimulus Within 48 Hours
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-California) on Monday said in a speech on the House floor that the U.S. House of Representatives would pass President Joe Biden's $1.9 trillion Covid-19 stimulus within the next 24 to 48 hours.
Biden’s signature $1.9 trillion Covid-19 relief bill passed the Senate 50-49 on Saturday following a more than 25-hour marathon of amendment votes completed after Democrats settled an intra-party dispute over unemployment aid.
The measure, the American Rescue Plan Act, now heads back to the House, where Majority Leader Steny Hoyer said a vote will be held Tuesday. Although some House progressives have complained about changes made by the Senate, none so far have threatened to withhold votes. Democrats aim to have it signed into law next week.
Enactment of the second-largest stimulus bill in U.S. history would hand Biden his first legislative victory and set the stage for work this spring on a massive infrastructure and manufacturing recovery bill that he wants.
