Congress passed the HEROES Act on May 12. The Senate is currently working on its own version of the bill, which is expected to be focused more on economic stimulus instead of rescue funds for businesses endangered by the COVID-19 outbreak. The bill is expected to have more funding for hospitals as well as state and local governments hit hard by declining revenues during the outbreak.
