WASHINGTON–You will likely get a $600 payment, if you got one last time. But, you may also be getting an additional $1,500, if the Senate votes yes on that bill. It passed the House Monday evening.
“I’m very pleased the House passed the CASH Act,” said Rep. Andre Carson, who represents Indianapolis in DC, in the 7th District. Carson is a Democrat, and he along with Rep. Pete Visclosky, Indiana’s only other Democrat representative, voted in favor of the bill.
“It would have been helpful if President Trump would have indicated his support sooner,” said Carson. “Instead of focusing on baseless election lawsuits, but I’m happy that we acted quickly.”
But, several Republicans also voted for the bill, including Susan Brooks, Greg Pence, Jim Baird and Jackie Walorski.
“I’m honored to stand with President Trump and fight for Hoosier workers and families. I just voted for $2,000 in direct relief payments to return money to taxpayers, help Americans get through this crisis, and rebuild our nation’s economy stronger than ever,” Tweeted Walorski, who represents parts of northern Indiana.
Representatives Jim Banks and Larry Bucshon voted no, while Trey Hollingsworth did not vote.
The bill was largely a Democrat measure, and it will have to pass the Senate before it can be signed into law.
