Biden signs bill ending Covid-19 national emergency
President Joe Biden on Monday signed a House bill immediately ending the Covid-19 national emergency, first enacted during the Trump administration in 2020.
The White House initially announced plans to extend the Covid-19 national emergency, as well as the public health emergency, until May 11. But shortly after, House Republicans put forth bills to end both imminently. The bill that the president signed into law on Monday ended only the national emergency.
The White House voiced opposition to the bills, saying the resolutions “would be a grave disservice to the American people.”
