The bipartisan House Problem Solvers Caucus held a “virtual Congress,” in which members participated in an unofficial floor debate via video conference. Members debated the next coronavirus relief bill, which they largely agreed should include assistance for state and local governments impacted by rising expenditures and falling revenues due to the pandemic. The “virtual Congress” also served as an experiment for how House members could debate legislation while maintaining social distancing.
