WASHINGTON (AP) - President Joe Biden is hailing the House passage of the $1.9 trillion pandemic relief bill he championed. He says that with decisive, fast, and bold action, “we can finally get ahead of this virus.”

The bill passed early Saturday on a near party-line vote and would steer cash to individuals, businesses, and states battered by COVID-19.

Now it goes to the Senate. Democrats there seem bent on resuscitating a minimum wage push, and other fights could erupt, too.

Democrats say the still-faltering economy and still-spreading virus demand action. Republicans call the legislation bloated and partisan.
