House Aims To Pass $2 Trillion Coronavirus Bill As Republican Rep Tries To Delay
The U.S. House gathered on Friday to pass a $2.2 trillion coronavirus relief package. Congress is hoping to pass the measure through a voice vote, which is one of the fastest methods available. Rep.Thomas Massie (R-KY) wrote on Twitter that he did not like that idea and would try to force a recorded vote. According to Reuters, if Massie were to succeed, that action could potentially delay the passage. Democratic and Republican aides, however, reported that enough members were present to override Massie. The House scheduled three hours of debate and hoped for a final vote sometime after noon EDT.
