House panel unveils $1.9T relief package
By Tal Axelrod - 02/19/21 07:46 PM EST

House Democrats on Friday unveiled a gargantuan $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package, the first step of codifying the proposal crafted by President Biden’s administration.

The package that will be considered by the House Budget Committee is the result of a combination of measures that have already been approved by at least nine different committees.

The full package could pass the House as soon as next week, though it faces what is expected to be a fierce battle in the Senate given Democrats’ razor-thin majority in the upper chamber and opposition from some centrists over some of the bill’s language, particularly over a boost to the minimum wage.

“This reconciliation bill is the next step toward implementing the American Rescue Plan and finally changing the direction of these crises,” said Rep. John Yarmuth (D-Ky.), the chair of the Budget panel. “Without this relief package, conditions will spiral further out of control and families will suffer needlessly.”

“We are in a race against time, and aggressive, bold action is needed before our nation is permanently scarred by the human and economic costs of inaction," he added. "We have the plan and the fiscal space, we have the American people behind us, and now we have the bill to get it done.”

The unveiling of the 591-page bill comes as Congress stares down a deadline for expanded unemployment benefits, which are set to start expiring next month.
