Coronavirus Aid Package Passes Senate

The U.S. Senate passed a $483.4 billion economic relief measure today that would replenish a popular small-business loan program and provide funding for hospitals facing financial shortfalls due to COVID-19.

The Senate’s voice vote, which occurred in a nearly empty chamber, sends the bill to the House for final passage likely on Thursday. House lawmakers are headed back to Washington for that vote, due to objections to a voice vote or unanimous consent.

President Trump has indicated that he would sign the measure when it reaches his desk.
