US House Of Representatives Passes $484 Billion Relief Bill

The U.S. House of Representatives returned to Washington on Thursday to pass a $484 billion coronavirus relief bill, funding small businesses and hospitals and pushing the total spending response to the crisis to an unprecedented nearly $3 trillion.

The Senate passed the legislation on Tuesday by unanimous consent.

Approval by the House will send it to the White House, where President Donald Trump has promised to sign it into law.
