Dems $1.9T relief bill likely to be passed next week - reports

United States President Joe Biden's coronavirus stimulus bill worth $1.9 trillion will most likely be passed in the House of Representatives next week, in line with previous plans, Punchbowl News reported on Thursday, citing people familiar with the matter.

However, talks are still ongoing and the bill's value is now slightly above the targeted $1.9 trillion. Nevertheless, Democrats are optimistic and believe all issues will be resolved in time.

Commenting on the bill negotiations earlier, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki stated that Biden was aware that his $15 minimum wage proposal may end up not being put into the legislation.
