Trump Signs Massive Measure Funding Government, COVID Relief
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — President Donald Trump has signed a $900 billion pandemic relief package that will deliver long-sought cash to businesses and individuals.
Trump announced the signing in a statement Sunday night in a message on Twitter that read, "Good news on Covid Relief Bill. Information to follow!" The massive bill includes $1.4 trillion to fund government agencies through September and contains other end-of-session priorities such as money for cash-starved transit systems and an increase in food stamp benefits.
Democrats are promising more aid to come once President-elect Joe Biden takes office, but Republicans are signaling a wait-and-see approach.
