Senate Vote on Stimulus Bill Likely Pushed Into Weekend

Senate Democrats on Thursday released an updated version of the $1.9 trillion stimulus plan that Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said will pass the chamber by the end of the week.

The plan includes a wave of new spending, an expansion of jobless benefits, more money for state and local governments and an expansion of vaccinations and virus-testing programs, but it’s still subject to modification in a marathon round of votes on amendments before it becomes law.
