House Passes Revised COVID-19 Relief Bill

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, October 13, 2020

Recently, the House of Representatives passed a revised “Phase 4” COVID-19 stimulus bill by a vote of 214-207. The legislation totals $2.2 trillion and addresses several areas of COVID-19 relief including tenant-based rental assistance, homeless assistance grants, state and local funding, direct stimulus payments to individuals and others.

 

All House Republicans voted against the legislation along with 18 Democrats. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) opposes the House bill and it is not expected to receive a vote in the Senate. Negotiations between the White House and Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) took place throughout the past week but both sides are far apart on a final Phase 4 bill. There remain significant disagreements over employer liability protections, supplemental unemployment insurance, and financial aid to state and local governments.
