SEE NEW POSTSMcCarthy says Trump 'bears responsibility for Wednesday's attack' House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., said in remarks on the House floor that Trump is to blame for last Wednesday's attack on the Capitol — but he shouldn't be impeached for it. "The president bears responsibility for Wednesday's attack on Congress by mob rioters. He should have immediately denounced the mob when he saw what was unfolding," McCarthy said on the House floor before the impeachment vote. McCarthy, however, said he opposes impeaching Trump, suggesting the censure of the president and a bipartisan commission to investigate the events leading up to the riot might be the better options.

"This is the most significant piece of climate and energy legislation enacted by Congress in at least a decade," said Dan Lashof, director of the World Resources Institute, a Washington-based global research nonprofit. The climate policy within the 5,593-page bill attracted support from prominent members of both parties in Congress. Biden has also said he plans to have the U.S. re-enter the Paris climate accord. And while Biden does have some Republican allies in his fight against climate change, pushing through significant legislation is expected to be challenging. McCarthy said these kinds of steps are key to reintroducing the U.S. as a global leader in the fight against climate change.

Congress Races to Approve Virus-Relief Package

WASHINGTON—A breakthrough Saturday night on the Federal Reserve’s emergency lending powers cleared a path for Congress to approve a roughly $900 billion coronavirus aid package, leaving lawmakers hours to finalize the agreement and vote on it. With the Fed matter settled, negotiators on Sunday were racing to put the finishing touches on the rest of the bill so the House and Senate could hold votes as early as Sunday on the package. We are not leaving until we have relief for the American people. Party leaders are pairing the relief measures with a roughly $1.4 trillion annual spending package, squeezing lawmakers to quickly write and approve the bill before government funding expires at 12:01 a.m. on Monday. Congress approved a 48-hour extension of government funding on Friday to give negotiators more time to finish the coronavirus relief package.

Congress is gearing up to hold Sunday votes on a $900 billion relief package with a very narrow margin for error, and several policy disagreements remain. Lawmakers are setting the stage to hold back-to-back votes Sunday on a $900 billion federal rescue package. The $900 billion rescue package is expected to include $300 federal unemployment benefits through early spring, $600 stimulus checks for Americans, and small business aid. Sen. Patrick Toomey, Republican of Pennsylvania, made a late push to include the measure in the final relief legislation. Negotiators are laboring to keep the overall price tag of the relief legislation under $1 trillion.
