On the morning of Saturday, Feb. 27, the U.S. House of Representatives passed President Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion COVID relief package with a 219-212 vote. The plan includes $1,400 stimulus checks, increased jobless benefits payments and COVID-19 vaccine funding.
The bill, H.R. 1319, the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, also includes a $15 minimum wage. However, the wage increase is set to fail in the Senate, as the parliamentarian has ruled that the increase can’t be included.
