The House passed a stimulus package Wednesday, the first step in a more complex package of legislation to be considered by the Senate later this month.
But Democrats in the Senate are not expected to vote on it until at least the middle of next week.
Democrats say they want the package to address the “economic ills” of struggling cities and towns that face cuts in local government funding.
The package includes more than $1 trillion in emergency spending, including $400 billion for highway construction and maintenance.
But it also includes a plan to provide $3.5 trillion in stimulus for the economy by 2019.
The bill includes $50 billion to help states ease regulations on coal and oil drilling.
Republicans argue the bill will make it harder for Americans to afford health care.
House Democrats said Wednesday that they are “working with” the Trump administration to find ways to address rising premiums.
They want the bill to address those rising costs by reducing tax credits and allowing families to deduct more of the costs of premiums, which are set to rise by more than 2% in 2018.
The tax credit cap for 2018 is set at $6,000, and some states have raised their tax credits to cover higher premiums.
But that could raise the costs for many middle-class families.
Trump and Democrats have been at odds on how to address soaring health care costs.
Last week, Trump said Republicans should not pass a healthcare bill because they would be hurting their own constituents.
