The US Senate concluded a marathon voting session on Saturday, passing President Biden’s $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill 50-49. The vote wrapped up a days-long process of debate and deliberation over the relief package. The measure now returns to the House of Representatives for another vote.

$1.9 Trillion COVID-19 Relief Bill Includes:

—$1,400 stimulus checks

—$300-a-week jobless benefits

—Child allowance up to $3,600

—$350 billion state/local aid

—$34 billion for ACA subsidies

—$14 billion vaccine distribution

—100% COBRA subsidies

The Senate finally passed their amended version of the American Rescue Plan, after 25+ hours of debate and a grueling vote-a-rama. Vice President Kamala Harris did not have to travel to the Capitol to break a tie, as GOP Sen. Dan Sullivan had to leave for a family emergency.
