WASHINGTON, March 11 (Reuters) - The U.S. House of Representatives is currently writing a coronavirus response bill and plans to vote on it on Thursday, Majority Leader Steny Hoyer said on Wednesday.
Democrats, who control the chamber, are looking at including unemployment insurance, paid sick leave, and family and medical leave in the bill. Hoyer said that the payroll tax cut suggested by President Donald Trump, a Republican, is a “non-starter” and would not be included in the legislation.
