After days of deliberation, the U.S. Senate has officially passed a $2 trillion emergency relief package in response to the coronavirus crisis.
The bill passed unanimously.
Pennsylvania Republican Senator Pat Toomey spoke on the floor of the Senate earlier this week.
This bill is a bipartisan product. It was assembled after days of negotiations between Republican and Democratic senators. We need to act now. This bill will help combat the COVID-19 health crisis, protect paychecks, and help employers preserve jobs for when this crisis is over. pic.twitter.com/yfxjaxxFc5

The relief package now moves to the House of Representatives.
