WASHINGTON, D.C. – On May 18, U.S. Rep. Grace Meng (D-Queens) applauded the House of Representatives’ passage of her COVID-19 Hate Crimes Act, which seeks to help combat the increase in anti-Asian hate that has occurred during the current COVID-19 pandemic. The bill passed 364 to 62. It follows the Senate’s approval of the measure last month by a nearly unanimous and overwhelming bipartisan vote of 94 to 1. The legislation now heads to President Biden who has said that he will sign it into law.
