House Aims To Pass $2 Trillion Coronavirus Bill As Republican Rep Tries To Delay

The U.S. House gathered on Friday to pass a $2.2 trillion coronavirus relief package.

Congress is hoping to pass the measure through a voice vote, which is one of the fastest methods available.

Rep.Thomas Massie (R-KY) wrote on Twitter that he did not like that idea and would try to force a recorded vote.

According to Reuters, if Massie were to succeed, that action could potentially delay the passage.
