House Passes The CARES Act; Heads to Trump for Signature
 

After a long morning of debate and voting, the House has passed The CARES Act. This $2.2 trillion package has sped through both houses of Congress and now heads to President Trump for his signature, which he widely expected to provide.

Following the lead of the Senate, the House will now go out of session until late April, although both houses have indicated they are willing to come back earlier if needed.


Senate Passes A Revised Version of The CARES Act


The Senate has just passed a revised version of The CARES Act estimated to cost close to $2 trillion by a unanimous vote.   The CARES Act now goes to the House, where leadership will attempt to pass the vote by voice vote on Friday. Should this method fail, the House will pursue other methods of voting and will likely have to call some or all of the House back.
