Biden to hold celebratory signing event for relief bill 

While President Joe Biden moved up his signing of the COVID-19 stimulus bill to Thursday, he will still hold a celebratory signing event with congressional leaders on Friday. The $1.9 trillion bill includes direct payments of up to $1,400 for individuals, billions to help schools and colleges reopen, and funding for vaccine distribution – along with many other measures aimed at helping America recover from the pandemic. The signing comes days before a federal boost to unemployment benefits was set to expire. All eyes were on Biden Thursday evening as he gave his first prime time address to the nation since taking office. He urged Americans to be unified in battling the coronavirus and to continue to take precautions against its spread while the administration works to make vaccines more widely available. He struck a hopeful tone for the country’s return to a semblance of normality while also acknowledging the loss all Americans have faced.
