Congress Passes $900 Billion Coronavirus Relief Package

Late Monday night, Congress approved a $900 billion coronavirus relief package. The long-delayed measure, passed both chambers with overwhelming bipartisan majorities: 359-53 in the House and 92-6 in the Senate. President Trump is expected to sign the bill soon, allowing at least some of the emergency aid to start flowing quickly. The package includes $600 direct payments to individuals and families, enhanced unemployment benefits, small business aid, and funding for distribution of the Covid-19 vaccine. It does not, however, include funding for state and local governments.
