DC Tax Flash: House Sends Virus Relief Bill to President
The House today approved the final version of virus relief reconciliation legislation (H.R. 1319), clearing the bill for the president's signature. It passed on a partisan 220-211 tally. No Republicans voted for the bill. Rep. Jared Golden (D-ME) was the only Democrat to vote against it.
The $1.9 trillion bill, which previously cleared the Senate last weekend, will be signed into law on Friday, the White House says.
The bill includes a number of tax policy changes affecting businesses. See this previously issued Tax Flash for more on these provisions.
