In this April 23, 2020, file photo, President Donald Trump's name is seen on a stimulus check issued by the IRS.

President Joe Biden will not be attaching his signature to the $1,400 relief checks that are expected to be mailed soon - a break with his predecessor who last year had "President Donald J. Trump" printed on the economic impact payments approved by Congress.

The next round of paper checks will bear the signature of a career official at the Treasury Department's Bureau of the Fiscal Service, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said at a Tuesday briefing.

House Democratic leaders said Tuesday that they have the votes to give final congressional approval to Biden's $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill. Passage has not been in serious question, but the leaders' confidence underscored the unity Democrats have shown during the effort.
