US vote on $3tn virus relief package

US Democrats are expected to push a $3tn (£2.4tn) coronavirus stimulus package through the House of Representatives today. The 1,800-page legislation, dubbed the Heroes Act, would provide a second round of stimulus cheques for millions of Americans and fund various sectors such as local governments, healthcare systems and the postal service. The wide-reaching bill also includes a section which requires passengers to wear face masks on aeroplanes and public transport, and a so-called "Heroes Fund" which would give extra pay to key workers. The White House has threatened to veto the bill and accused Democrats of trying to pass "ideological wish lists", while Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell called it "a totally unserious effort".
