The House of Representatives passed a bipartisan bill early Saturday morning attempting to provide relief over the rapidly spreading coronavirus COVID-19.

The Families First Coronavirus Response Act was the product of days of negotiation between House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, and passed  363-40, with all 40 no votes coming from Republicans. The bill is expected to pass the Senate with some minor changes, and has the support of President Donald Trump. The package has been criticized by some conservatives, and some progressives for not going far enough, but the legislation does offer plenty that both sides have been supportive of.
