The Trump administration is moving forward with its COVID bill, which is expected to be voted on Thursday.
Trump said Wednesday that the bill should be approved and signed before Friday.
He said the bill would also provide states with the authority to declare a COVID emergency if they have a high number of coronavirus cases.
President Donald Trump signs the bill, Thursday, Dec. 21, 2020, in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington, D.C.
Trump called for an urgent end to the COVID exemption in the bill that Congress passed in the spring.
It would allow states to impose limits on health insurance coverage for those who have tested positive for COVID.
The bill also gives the federal government a power to set COVID guidelines for states.
The Senate passed the bill on Thursday by a vote of 67-31.
Trump signed it into law the next day.
It was the first time a president has signed a bill into law in which a majority of the Senate voted in favor.
Democrats on the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee are working on amendments to the bill.
The amendments include a provision to require the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to track the COFF-1 virus, as well as an amendment that would provide for a more thorough public review of coronovirus cases and coronaviruses before states declare a state of emergency.
The Senate voted against the amendments.
House Democrats on the committee are also working on their own amendments to protect people with COVID from COVID exposure, which could include requiring states to collect the COVEVIRUS DNA in order to prevent the spread of the virus.
The House on Wednesday also passed the Senate version of the bill and passed it by a majority vote.
