The U.S. Senate has passed an $8.3 billion measure to help tackle the coronavirus outbreak.
Iowa’s two senators, Chuck Grassley and Joni Ernst, supported the measure.
Ernst spoke with KSCJ News before Thursday’s vote:
OC………..resources they need. ;15
The money will pay for a multifaceted attack on a virus that is spreading more widely every day, sending financial markets spiraling, disrupting travel and potentially threatening the U.S. economy’s decade-long expansion.
OC………going with trade. :21
Thursday’s vote sends the bill to the White House for President Donald Trump’s signature.
The plan would more than triple the $2.5 billion amount outlined by the White House 10 days ago.
