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.
