Senate Passes $484B Bill to Aid Small Businesses, Hospitals

The Wall Street Journal reported that the Senate passed a $484 billion bill designed to deliver aid to small businesses and hospitals, with $320 billion allocated to replenish the Paycheck Protection Program.

The Journal noted the bill, which is supported by President Trump, will move to the House where a vote is expected on Thursday.

The bill includes funding to expedite COVID-19 testing capabilities but does not provide aid for state and local governments, which will be negotiated further in Congress, according to the Journal.
