Senate Holds Extra Tuesday Session

Both parties seek to pass more COVID-19 aid

On Tuesday, Senate leaders agreed to hold an unplanned meeting in order to pass the next round of COVID-19 aid. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said from the Senate floor on Monday, “Since this is so urgent, I have asked that the Senate meet again tomorrow in a new session that was not previously scheduled, and the Democratic leader has agreed to my request. Colleagues, it is past time, past time, to get this done for the country,”

According to Treasury Secretary Mnuchin, the new plans would likely authorize additional funding for the Paycheck Protection Program, which ran out of money last week. The plan would also include funding for the Economic Injury Disaster Loan, hospitals, and increased testing that would ideally be on a federal level. 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the House and Senate to pass legislation that would bring help to Americans in need. 
  • For Treasury Secretary Mnuchin to be used by God to bring economic stability to the country.
  • For the White House to have wisdom on how best to end this pandemic.
