The U-S House is expected to vote on a $470 billion coronavirus relief package passed earlier this week by the Senate. The bipartisan measure targets $25 billion to improve the nation’s coronavirus testing capabilities–which Minnesota Senator Tina Smith says is critical:

“We have got to have a much stronger and robust testing system in Minnesota and around the country if we want to be able to slowly reopen places of businesses and our communities.”

The bill also aims to put around 370-billion dollars into a small business loan fund and $75 billion would help hospitals handle the surge in COVID-19 infections.
