In a 217-189 vote, the House passed H.Res. 965, which allows proxy voting on the chamber floor and committees to conduct business remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic. Members also passed, 208-199, H.R. 6800 (The HEROES Act), the fifth coronavirus aid package. The $3 trillion bill includes money for state and local governments, coronavirus testing, and cash payments to Americans. Due to COVID-19 pandemic social distancing guidelines, members were divided into six groups who each voted separately, and during debate, lawmakers stayed in their offices except during their speaking time.
