House Passes COVID III Economic Relief Legislation

CARES Act Heads to President’s Desk

Today, the House passed the $2 trillion stimulus package, known as the CARES Act. The House approved the measure by voice vote, after leaders in both parties deflected an effort by Representative Thomas Massie (R-KY), to force recorded vote requiring lawmakers to register their positions individually. It now heads to President Trump’s desk, where he is expected to sign it.

Reps. Gallego (D-AZ), Haaland (D-NM), Joyce (R-OH), Cole (R-OK), Torres (D-CA), Kildee (D-MI), and Reed (R-NY) worked with House leadership to enter the attached colloquy into the Congressional record. The colloquy supports a flexible interpretation of the legislation and economic stimulus to benefit tribal nations and will be helpful in upcoming discussions on implementation with the Administration.
