As Senate Republicans were reeling late Monday following two unsuccessful procedural votes on their version of a coronavirus response bill, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., released her chamber’s version of legislation to fight the disease and its economic effects — and it includes a raft of provisions with questionable relevance to the pandemic that has killed more than 17,000 worldwide and sickened more than 390,000.
The $2.5 trillion package includes many of the same elements as the Senate bill, which is still being negotiated as of Tuesday morning — Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer says he expects to vote on a Senate bill by Tuesday night. These similarities include support for workers and small businesses financially impacted by the large-scale economic slowdown from stemming the spread of the outbreak; help for hospitals and health care workers in need of personal protective equipment (PPE) and other supplies; tax breaks for average Americans; direct cash assistance to all adult Americans and other measures directly applicable to the crisis at hand.
BUT IT ALSO INCLUDES A NUMBER OF OTHER MEASURES THAT HAVE RANKLED REPUBLICANS, INCLUDING FUNDING FOR THE KENNEDY CENTER — A PERFORMING ARTS CENTER IN WASHINGTON, D.C. — THE ELIMINATION OF THE U.S. POSTAL SERVICE’S DEBT TO THE TREASURY, A REQUIREMENT THAT AIRLINES ACCEPTING ASSISTANCE UNDER THE BILL HAVE A UNION REPRESENTATIVE ON THEIR BOARD, ENVIRONMENTAL REGULATIONS FOR AIRLINES AND MORE.
Pelosi argued that the Senate bill, unlike the House’s, would “put corporations first, not workers and families.” Republicans, on the other hand, argued that Democrats are using the pandemic to push through the left’s agenda items under the pretense of a bill to fight the coronavirus.
“They ought to be embarrassed,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said of similar proposals being pushed by Senate Democrats. “There is no time for this nonsense.”
Here’s some of what’s in the House Democrats’ $2.5 trillion, 1,404-page bill.
The House Democrats’ bill requires that any company getting coronavirus-related aid disclose its diversity stats, including its employees’ race, gender, pay, corporate board diversity and the structure of its offices that deal with diversity and inclusion.
The reports, which will be made public within a year of the companies accepting federal coronavirus-related assistance, will also include the “number and dollar value invested with minority-and-women owned suppliers … including professional services (legal and consulting) and asset managers, and deposits and other accounts with minority depository institutions, as compared to all vendor investments.”
