The House Budget Committee on Monday voted 19-16 to approve the $1.9 trillion rescue plan.
After approving the bill, the Committee will debate adding non-binding resolutions to the bill. This means that any measure added to the bill will not be required to be followed.
The legislation now travels to the House Rules Committee where binding amendments can be added to the bill.
The House chamber is expected to vote on the rescue bill later this week where passage is expected.
The legislation includes provisions from nine House committees, including the tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee, which recently vetted and passed its rescue plan.
Below are some of the provisions that the House Ways and Means Committee approved for the rescue plan:
