U.S. Senate passed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (the CARES Act)






Late on March 25, the U.S. Senate passed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (the CARES Act) by a vote of 96-0. The bill, which provides $2 trillion in coronavirus (COVID-19) relief, will now move to the U.S. House of Representatives for consideration. The House is expected to vote on the bill on March 27. The proposed law contains a wide variety of relief, including small business loans, expanded unemployment aid, $100 billion for hospitals and health systems, funds for industries hit by the virus and direct cash payments to individuals under a certain income threshold. We’ll provide more information as it becomes available.
