    Doesn’t it have to pass the Senate?

    The bill he signed today was the one passed by the Senate back in December. It’s now law.
    On Sunday, the House passed both the Senate bill and a series of fixes they agreed on with Senate Democratic leadership – all of which can, in theory, be passed through the reconciliation process in the Senate, which wouldn’t be subject to the 60-vote cloture rule. If the Senate Democrats can (a) keep 50 of their own caucus in line and (b) stop Republicans from completely obstructing the process, they’ll be able to vote on those provisions sometime this week and the President will be able to sign the completed bill into law.
