Confirmed: the House will vote today on The Heroes Act—the latest stimulus relief bill that includes, among other things, a second round of $1,200 stimulus checks, $200 billion in hazard pay for essential workers and a six-month extension to the COVID-19 unemployment program.
So far, Congress has passed several large stimulus packages in response to the coronavirus pandemic. Now, the House has put forward another one and will vote on it today. The details of this latest coronavirus stimulus relief package were released Tuesday. If this stimulus package becomes law, it would insert an additional $3 trillion into the economy in the ongoing effort to address the outstanding concerns and needs of those most impacted by the pandemic. It would also help to fill state, local and tribal government budget shortfalls.
Key aspects of The Heroes Act:

Will it pass?
Though not all Democrats are on board with this stimulus relief package—some argue that it goes too far and others argue that it doesn’t go far enough—it is believed that there are indeed enough votes to pass The Heroes Act today. It is also estimated that up to a handful of Republicans will sign on to the bill as well and vote yes because the bill provides large sums of money for states and local governments. Some Republican representatives would be hard pressed by their constituents if they vote against money for state and local governments in this time of crisis.

The federal funds rate (the interbank overnight lending rate) is estimated to be more than a percentage point below its natural level. And there have been no surprises from the Fed.
