WASHINGTON D.C. -- The House passed the Democrats $2.2 trillion coronavirus relief plan known as the heroes act.

It passed 214-207, no Republicans voted for it and 18 Democrats voted against it including 22nd District Congressman Anthony Brindisi.

He released the following statement: "You sent me to Washington to deliver on a bipartisan agenda. This latest relief package might make some in my party feel good but it won't actually do good, in part because it totally lacked Republican input. As someone who knows what it takes to get President Trump to sign legislation, my vote urges both sides to stop the dithering and to focus on real relief for people and small businesses. That's the plan I presented with other colleagues across the aisle. And with gridlock in the Senate, thanks to the same Washington playbook and Mitch McConnell—who is no friend to our area--Congress is broken. Simply put, we need to unite not divide. That's what I'll keep fighting for, and I'm confident most people agree."

The bill now goes to the Senate where it is not likely to pass.
