$ 1.9 trillion economic support package accepted by the US Senate


The bill was approved by a 50 to 49 vote, after discussions in the Senate General Assembly until late last night.

The bill, which was opened up by the introduction of a legal arrangement called “compromise”, was passed by the Senate without the need for the support of the Republicans.

The session held in the Senate for the vote of the bill broke a record with a duration of 11 hours and 50 minutes.

The bill will be submitted to Biden for signature if it is accepted while it is sent to the House of Representatives due to the regulations made on it.

The bill, which is described as the largest package that the Biden administration has worked on against the economic effects of Kovid-19, includes $ 1400 per person cash assistance, as well as $ 350 billion for states and local governments.

It is envisaged that the unemployment benefit, which was previously determined as 400 dollars per week, will be provided as 300 dollars after the negotiations and its duration will be extended until 6 September.
