With Strong Support From Florida Delegation, House Approves $484 Billion in Coronavirus Stimulus Funds
On Thursday, with many of its members wearing masks and with social distancing efforts in effect, the U.S. House approved another $484 billion in federal funds to help the economy during the coronavirus pandemic.
Last week, three members of the Florida delegation sent a letter to congressional leadership calling on them to ensure that future federal stimulus efforts do not include funds for the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV).
Only two members voted against the bill, as both U.S. Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., and U.S. Rep. Ken Buck, R-Col., objected to it. Thirteen members, including U.S. Rep. Francis Rooney, R-Fla., did not vote on the bill.
Over the summer, the U.S. House passed U.S. Rep. Frank Pallone’s, D-NJ. “Stopping Bad Robocalls” bill with major input from members of the Florida delegation.
Earlier this month, the national debt hit $22 trillion and it continues to increase. U.S. Sen. David Perdue, R-Ga., and U.S. Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., brought out a resolution this week and offered their rationale for it on Tuesday.
Incoming Gov. Ron DeSantis was one of the leading champions of moving the embassy to Jerusalem during his three terms in the House.
