Yellen applauds passage of $1.9T COVID relief bill

United States Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen applauded the passage of President Joe Biden's $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package in the House on Saturday.

According to Yellen, the legislation "ensures that people make it to the other side of this pandemic and are met there by a strong, growing economy."

"As an economist - and an American - I applaud the House’s favorable vote on the American Rescue Plan. There’s a broad consensus among economists: People need more help putting food on the table & keeping a roof over their head until the virus is under control. This plan does that," the Treasury secretary wrote on Twitter.
