The Senate voted 94-1 to pass a bill denouncing discrimination against Asian communities in the US and creating a new position at the Justice Department to expedite reviews of potential Covid-19-related hate crimes. The bill would also direct the departments of Justice and Health and Human Services to raise awareness of hate crimes during the pandemic and work with agencies to establish an online reporting system. The bill now goes to the House before being signed into law by President Biden.
