Congress sends COVID-19 relief bill to President Donald Trump for signature

At this point the only thing that stands between Americans and a $600 stimulus check is President Donald Trump’s signature.

The relief package was passed Monday night and will deliver individuals resources desperately needed as the pandemic crushes the economy.

The $1.4 trillion deal includes $600 in stimulus payments, which could start rolling out next week, as well as $300 additional weekly benefits for unemployment over a 10 week period.

President-elect Joe Biden called the deal a temporary solution, citing the need for more robust action in his administration.

There’s a new round of subsidies in the deal for hard-hit-businesses, restaurants, and theaters, as well as money for schools and health care providers. There’s also money for renters facing eviction.
