Senate passes 'Families First Coronavirus Response Act'
The Senate passed a bill Wednesday to ensure paid benefits for many Americans, while millions are holed up at home against the coronavirus.
Lawmakers say it’s a multi-billion dollar aid package that would provide sick and family leave, boost food assistance programs, while also offering free testing for COVID-19.
The Senate approved the plan with a vote, 90-8.
The bill will now be sent to the White House for President Trump’s signature.
Gray DC spoke with lawmakers involved with the vote.
