The U.S. House of Representatives budget committee approved Monday a bill with $1.9 trillion in coronavirus relief, backed by President Joe Biden.
The measure passed the panel on a vote of 19-16. The full House of Representatives hopes to pass the bill later this week. It would stimulate the U.S. economy and carry out Biden’s proposals to provide additional money for COVID-19 vaccines and other medical equipment.
