Biden found some success on Wednesday when the House of Representatives passed the $1.9 trillion COVID relief package. This bill will offer Americans up to $1,400 per person that will send money to 90 percent of households.
This bill also is helping schools, restaurants and local governments, giving $120 billion to schools across the country, $30 billion to restaurants and $350 billion to local and state governments. For unemployment, it extends the $300 per week and is allowing Americans to receive unemployment insurance until Sep. 7. Americans can expect to receive their payments in 1-2 weeks.
