WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden has signed a pair of executive orders that were meant to offer a quick dose of economic relief to an economy still being hammered by the coronavirus.

Both measures were largely stopgaps as Congress considers a $1.9 trillion stimulus plan from Biden.

The orders aim to increase food aid, make it easier to claim government benefits, protect unemployed workers and point federal workers and contractors toward a $15 minimum wage.
