Over the weekend, the Senate approved a version of President Biden’s $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan, setting up a vote in the House that could send the package to Biden’s desk as early as Tuesday.

The package contains direct cash payments for many Americans, extended unemployment benefits, billions of dollars for vaccine distribution and a significant change to the child tax credit that could lift millions of American children out of poverty. Indi Dutta-Gupta of the Georgetown Center on Poverty and Inequality explains how the credit would work.

And there’s new guidance for Americans who’ve been fully vaccinated. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say vaccinated people can feel safe enjoying a few pre-pandemic freedoms. NPR’s Allison Aubrey has details. Here’s more information on the new CDC recommendations.
