THE US House of Representatives approved the $2trillion bill on November 19 to combat climate change and expand social benefits.
House Representatives made the decision after an 8 hour and 32-minute speech from House Speaker Republican Kevin McCarthy.
McCarthy's lengthy speech was intended to delay Democrats from approving the bill that will set aside funds to assist families and businesses, and workers.
The bill will also allocate $550billion in an effort to take action against climate change.
The approval came only two weeks after the House approved the historic $2trillion infrastructure bill to improve the nation's roads, bridges, and ports.
The social policy and climate change spending bill was approved with a majority of 220 to 213.
