The US Senate approved a package of measures to stimulate the economy

The US Senate on Saturday approved a package of measures to stimulate the economy for $ 1.9 trillion; C-Span broadcasted the meeting.

50 senators voted for the bill, 49 against it. One Republican senator did not participate in the vote, which ended a more than a 24-hour session that lasted from Friday to Saturday night.

However, some amendments were made to the bill; as expected, the provision to increase the minimum wage to $ 15 per hour by 2025 was removed from it.

Now the document must once again pass through the vote in the lower house, after which, if it remains in the same form, it will go to President Joe Biden for signature.

The key measure of the new incentive package will be checked for $ 1,400, which most taxpayers will receive in the United States. The bill also provides for the allocation of measures to support local authorities at various levels, schools, and businesses.
