  • Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Saturday that the Senate will hold two votes next week on a half-trillion-dollar coronavirus relief package, even as the chances of Congress approving a broader deal before the election remain slim.
  • The Senate will vote Tuesday on additional money for the Paycheck Protection Program and Wednesday on the rest of the package.
