Senate coronavirus stimulus bill passes after days of wrangling
The Senate passed a $2.2 trillion rescue package overnight. As part of the bill, the government will send a $1,200 check to people earning less than $75,000 a year, plus $500 per child. People earning up to $99,000 a year will get a smaller check. Those check are expected to go out April 6 and it could take about 4-5 weeks to reach people by mail. Those with direct deposit could get it sooner. The legislation now goes to the House for a vote, which will likely happen tomorrow. President Trump is expected to sign the measure into law once it reaches his desk. Visit KTNV.com for more details and for updates.
