The US Senate yesterday finally passed the $2 trillion “Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act” (CARES Act) by a rare bipartisan and unanimous vote, but the unprecedented stimulus bill faces some challenges in the US House. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi originally had hoped to pass the legislation by unanimous consent (avoiding recalling the House to DC) earlier this week, but several members – from both the left and the right political flanks – objected to passing such a major piece of legislation without any opportunity to debate or comment on its contents. In response, the Speaker now hopes to move the bill quickly through the lower chamber with a voice vote (which doesn’t require all 435 representatives to be in attendance) and get it to the President’s desk before the weekend. Stay tuned!
