Covid stimulus update: Biden signs $1.9 trillion relief bill

The plan will send stimulus checks to most Americans, extend unemployment aid, expand the child tax credit and put money into Covid-19 vaccinations.

  • President Joe Biden signed the $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package on Thursday afternoon.
  • The plan, his top priority as president, sends direct payments of up to $1,400, extends a $300 per week unemployment insurance supplement, expands the child tax credit and puts funds into vaccine distribution.
  • Democrats passed the legislation on their own in Congress, as Republicans question the need for a major stimulus package while the economy improves.
