House Democrats on Tuesday unveiled their latest round of legislation to provide Americans with economic relief from the coronavirus pandemic.

The House is expected to pass the $3 trillion bill on Friday along party lines as Democrats seek to put pressure on Republicans to start negotiations for additional measures to contain the impact of the outbreak on workers.

The legislation provides additional funding for food assistance and state and local governments, among other provisions.

Senate Republicans and the White House have called for a “pause” before taking up additional legislation so lawmakers can review the impact of already-allocated coronavirus relief funds.
