Congress Breaks for Recess, but Momentum Moves Toward Passage of Additional COVID-19 Relief 

Following the acquittal of former President Donald Trump Saturday, the House and Senate returned to their home Districts and States for the scheduled President’s Day recess. However, last week, House Committees began markup of the next COVID-19 relief package. Passed out of Committee were instructions to the House Budget Committee to begin drafting the final text of the COVID-19 relief package. The Senate is expected to move on the final package the following week.
