House Approves Roughly $2 Trillion Social Spending Measure

WASHINGTON—The House passed a roughly $2 trillion education, healthcare and climate package on Friday, as Democrats corralled their slim majority to approve the centerpiece of President Biden’s economic agenda after months of wrangling.

While the 220-213 House vote puts Democrats closer to unifying their fractious centrist and progressive wings behind the bill, the party will need to move the legislation through the evenly divided Senate. There, lawmakers are planning to change or pare back some of the bill’s provisions in the coming weeks.
