On March 25, 2020 the United States Senate passed a sweeping $2 trillion stimulus package designed to abate the economic damages caused by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act is the third piece of legislation crafted to address the COVID-19 outbreak.

Please note: The details on this legislation are not final until it passes the House and the President enacts it. The items discussed remain subject to change.
