Senate passes $1.9 trillion Covid relief bill, including $1,400 stimulus checks, with no Republican support...

The House must pass the amended legislation before it heads to President Joe Biden for his signature.

The Senate's changes to the House-passed version of the plan include reducing the jobless benefits to $300 (from $400 in the House bill) and extending them slightly to September 6. The Senate limited eligibility for the $1,400 checks by capping the payments for those who make $80,000, or $160,000 for couples. And the bill subsidizes 100 percent of COBRA insurance coverage for jobless Americans, up from 85 percent in the House version.
