House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said before the vote “this legislation is transformative, lifting 12 million Americans out of poverty and generating $1.25 for every dollar spent, and a great source of pride for us all because this legislation would cut child poverty in half.”

She added “as we advance this legislation, we will continue to fight for $15” minimum wage.

However, the provision increasing the federal minimum wage is expected to be stripped following a ruling by the Senate parliamentarian.
