COVID-19 stimulus package running through Congress

Wisconsinites could soon be seeing the benefits of a $2 trillion stimulus package designed to perk up an economy being ravaged because of the COVID-19 outbreak. Passed unanimously by the U.S. Senate Wednesday evening, the legislation includes direct payments of up to $1,200 to most individuals, expanded unemployment benefits, and billions of dollars in loans for small businesses and large industries. Democratic Senator Tammy Baldwin says the package also sends billions of dollars to the frontlines battling the virus.

Speaking before the final stimulus package bill was released, Republican Representative Mike Gallagher also said supplying hospitals with the funds needed to stay open was important for the health of Americans and the economy.

The House of Representatives is expected to vote on the stimulus package as soon as Friday, even though many of its members are spread out across the country.
