Senate debate begins this morning on Biden’s “American Rescue Act”

A marathon debate is now underway on President Biden’s nearly $2 trillion dollar COVID relief bill.

Dozens of amendments will have to be voted on first, much like what happened with the recent budget resolutions. The process could last into the wee hours of the morning.

Senator Ron Johnson requested the 630 page bill be read in full, which took eleven hours last night. Some key items we are watching are the $15 dollar minimum wage and derecho relief for Midwestern farmers.
