House Approves $484 Billion in Additional Coronavirus Relief Funding

Democracy Now
April 29, 2020

On Capitol Hill, House lawmakers voted overwhelmingly Thursday to approve another $484 billion in emergency relief. Most of the money will replenish the Paycheck Protection Program, set up to provide forgivable loans to small businesses. New York Congressmember Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez blasted Republicans for refusing to take up new assistance to hard-hit U.S. residents like cash payments and food aid in the latest relief bill. And she pointed to big businesses like corporate chain restaurants that got tens of millions of dollars in loans meant for small businesses.
