About $1 trillion of the money would go to states, cities and tribal governments struggling to combat COVID-19.
It will include a second round of direct payments of $1,200 per family member, and up to $6,000 per household.

The massive package introduced by Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Tuesday would allocate more than $3 trillion to several different places, including to state governments and the bank accounts of citizens.
These include allowing all dependents to be eligible for payments instead of just children under 17, allowing payments to go to people who provide individual taxpayer identification numbers in addition to people who provide Social Security numbers, exempting payments from being reduced if someone owes past-due child support, and preventing payments from being garnished by private debt collectors.

The Republican leader on Tuesday called the emerging Democratic bill a "big laundry list of pet priorities". This would raise the threshold for virus-related malpractice lawsuits and provide legal protections for companies. The measure is being criticized both by Republicans, who feel that it is too expense, and by progressive Democrats who feel that it does not do enough.
Republican lawmakers are pushing for a narrower bill that would reform liability protections for businesses and schools.
Even if the measure clears the House on Friday - the vote is expected to be highly partisan and straight down party lines - there are roadblocks in the Senate, where Republicans have said countless times now that they don't see an imminent need for another emergency relief package.
"Of course, Nancy Pelosi knows that", he told reporters at the White House on Wednesday when asked about the bill's prospects.
