Senate approves budget resolution for a new economic package without the need for Republican support, according to information published on various portals such as Fox News.
With Vice President Kamala Harris’ tiebreaker vote, the Senate endorsed a budget resolution for coronavirus relief, with a 51-50 vote.
The session in which Republicans forced Democrats to take votes on difficult issues for more than 15 hours was marathon.
Although this is not a final bill, it allows the Senate to go after a bill based on the rules of budget reconciliation.
This will also give way for Democrats to give the green light to a coronavirus economic stimulus plan.
