ABC's Maryalice parks is at the white house with the latest. Good morning to you, Maryalice. Reporter: Good morning, Eva. Yeah, Democrats feeling good.

In fact, in the house two Democrats voted against it as well. President Biden one step closer to his first major legislative win. The bill is passed. Reporter: The house overnight passing his $1.9 trillion recovery package. That bill and the vaccine rollout his primary focus since taking office. The president telling univision -- We're focusing on communities that have been left behind. Reporter: Lawmakers up against an urgent deadline, unemployment benefits for millions of Americans still out of work with this pandemic set to expire on March 14th. The bill would extend and expand those unemployment benefits, send most Americans a one-time $1,400 stimulus check and direct billions to states for vaccines, testing and schools. Across the country many states unwilling to wait for Washington. Governors on both sides of the aisle signing their own relief packages.
