The House of Representatives voted Wednesday to approve the $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief plan, paving the way for President Biden to sign his top legislative priority into law later this week and deliver aid to most American households amid the pandemic. Key features of the plan include up to $1,400-per-person stimulus payments that will send money to about 90% of households, a $300 federal boost to weekly jobless benefits, an expansion of the child tax credit of up to $3,600 per child and $350 billion in state and local aid. In addition, the plan will give billions of dollars for K-12 schools to help students return to the classroom, assist small businesses hard-hit by the pandemic and for vaccine research, development and distribution.
