The U.S. House of Representatives passed President Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill on Wednesday with a vote of 220-211. Biden’s press secretary announced that he will sign the bill at the White House on Friday afternoon. The vote wrapped up a days-long process of debate and deliberation over the relief package.

Biden COVID-19 relief bill includes $1,400 checks, $300 weekly jobless benefits, child allowance of up to $3,600 for one year, $125 billion for K-12 schools, $30 billion for public transit, $25 billion for rental assistance, and $14 billion for vaccine distribution.

Biden will not sign his name on the stimulus checks set to be distributed this month as part of his $1.9 trillion COVID relief package — reversing a precedent set by former President Trump in the first two rounds of relief checks.
