Yesterday, the Senate passed a $484 billion interim coronavirus funding bill that includes $310 billion in additional funds for the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). The Paycheck Protection Program and Health Care Enhancement Act passed by a voice vote in the Senate following extensive negotiations between Senate Republicans, Senate Democrats, the Trump Administration and House leadership.

The bill now goes to the House for a vote that could happen as early as Thursday. Members of the House are currently heading back to Washington in anticipation of the vote. It is expected that the House will debate the merits of the bill but pass the bill without any changes and the President has said he will sign the bill into law.
