The news over the weekend was the US Senate had approved the relief plan:
- US Senate passes $1.9 trillion stimulus bill
The bill now heads to the US House of Representatives for a vote on Tuesday, where it is expected to be easily approved. The bill will then be signed by Biden, and then the checks.
President Joe Biden said
- “When we took office 45 days ago, I promised the American people that help was on the way. Today, I can say we’ve taken one more giant step forward in delivering on that promise that help is on the way”
- “This plan will get checks out the door starting this month to the Americans that so desperately need the help”
