President Donald Trump has signed the massive measure approved by Congress aimed at helping laid-off workers, financially strapped companies and a stressed health care system as a result of the coronavirus outbreak.
Final congressional action came on March 27, when the House passed the bill by voice vote. President Trump signed it a short time later.
Two days earlier, the Senate cleared the package on a 96-0 vote.
Under the final version—the product of a bipartisan Senate-White House agreement announced early on March 25—billions of dollars could go for infrastructure or other construction, including hospitals, airports and transit systems.
