The House passed Biden’s $1.9 trillion stimulus bill – here’s what’s next

  • The House of Representatives passed President Joe Biden's $1.9 trillion stimulus package early Saturday, teeing up days of debate and deal-making in the Senate.
  • The House, led by Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., voted largely along party lines to advance the stimulus plan, which includes jobless benefits for millions of Americans.
  • With the bill bound for a Senate split 50-50 between Democrats and Republicans, lawmakers will begin offering amendments to the House's plan.
  • Democrats are rushing to send the bill to Biden's desk by March 14, when jobless benefits are set to expire.
