From the Washington Post:
“The House is expected to vote Friday on a $2 trillion emergency relief bill. Measures in the stimulus package aim to support households and businesses facing massive losses from the prolonged shutdown of normal life.
“House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) agreed to approve the measure with a voice vote Friday that would not require all 430 current members of the House to travel to the Capitol, given that two lawmakers have contracted the disease and others are self-quarantining due to exposure to confirmed carriers.The leadership also is taking meticulous steps to change the protocol for debate and voting to ensure the safety of lawmakers.
“One lawmaker, Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) is threatening to stymie swift passage of the stimulus bill, potentially delaying a vote until the weekend.”
