Lawmakers discuss House vote on latest coronavirus aid
U.S. House members came back to Capitol Hill Thursday to vote on the latest coronavirus aid package.
With a price tag of $483 billion, the package includes more funding for small businesses, hospitals and increased COVID-19 testing.
The Paycheck Protection Program, which ran out of money last week, would get an extra $310 billion.
The U.S. Senate passed the legislation by voice vote Tuesday.
House members were expected to also cast a vote on whether to allow voting by proxy, but Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. called it off.
Gray DC speaks to lawmakers about the latest relief and how local communities will be impacted.
