The measure passed the House and Senate with no Republican support – but there’s a reason for that –the number of projects unrelated to Covid that are in the bill.
Meanwhile, Americans may start seeing stimulus checks as soon as this weekend. That’s the word from Press SecretaryJen Psaki[[ SAH-kee ]]. She called it "the first wave" after President Biden signed the massive stimulus bill into law.
