The Senate reached a bipartisan agreement on a $2 trillion coronavirus economic relief packagethat is headed for a vote when the chamber convenes at noon.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced the deal around 1:30 a.m. in a floor speech early Wednesday that followed hours of closed-door talks with Democrats and Trump administration officials.
“At last, we have a deal,” the Kentucky Republican said.
“After days of intense discussions, the Senate has reached a bipartisan agreement on an historic relief package for this pandemic,” he continued. “It will rush new resources into the front lines of our nation’s healthcare fight, and it will inject trillions of dollars of cash into the economy as fast as possible to help the American workers, families, small businesses, and industries make it through this disruption and emerge on the other side ready to soar.”
