House Approves $484 Billion Coronavirus Relief Package For Small Businesses, Hospitals, Testing

  • April 24, 2020

The Washington Post (4/23, A1, Werner) reports the House “overwhelmingly passed a $484 billion spending package Thursday as the unemployment crisis deepened, a stark illustration of how policymakers continue trying to rescue an unraveling economy amid growing despair.” The legislation, “approved 388-5, would restart a small-business loan program that was swamped by demand and allocate more money for health-care providers and virus testing.” The legislation “will now go to President Trump for enactment following Senate passage this week.”
