Even with Janet Yellen leading the Treasury Department, more government pandemic spending will depend on Congress
Jeffrey Cleveland, chief economist at Payden & Rygel, says it's not "smooth sailing right out of the gates" for more federal pandemic relief once the Biden administration takes over.

"Having a helpful advocate at Treasury pushing spending programs through Congress is the key here," he said.
GM had previously sided with the Trump administration in a legal fight over California setting its own emissions standards.
