The House of Representatives Budget Committee Monday approved a bill with $1.9 trillion in COVID-19 relief backed by President Joe Biden, sending it to the full House for debate.

This was the first major vote for the 591-page package, as Democrats continue to debate issues such as raising the minimum wage and how much aid to funnel to struggling state and local governments; the measure passed the panel on a largely party-line vote of 19-16. The committee sent the bill to the full House for debate and potentially passage later this week.

Democrats hold a thin 10-vote House majority, which leaves little room for defections in the face of solid Republican opposition to the legislation. They have none in a 50-50 Senate, where the party’s control lies with Vice President Kamala Harris’ tie-breaking vote.
