Alaska’s US senators doing a great job: Multi-Billion Dollar Coronavirus bill about to pass.
Congress is working to provide relief for American’s who suffered financial losses due to the Corona Virus pandemic.
On Wednesday 18th of March 2020, the Senate passed the Families First Corona Virus Response Act, a bill that originated in the House and President Trump signed it into law. Both Alaska’s senators voted for the legislation.
The key focus of this bill is paid leave for sick employees or those you who need leave for childcare.
The Senate hopes to pass a massive stimulus plan which includes direct payments of maybe $1000 to most Americans.
This bill could total $1 trillion, its an extraordinary price tag but the country needs to implement this in order to strengthen its citizens.
