As of Thursday morning, Senate Majority Leader McConnell has not posted the CASH Act for a Senate vote. This legislation would provide an additional $1,400 stimulus check to the previously authorized $600 for a total of $2,000. The CASH Act passed the House earlier this week. Despite public pressure from President Trump, and Senate Democrats’ attempt to force a vote by delaying the vote to override the President’s veto of the National Defense Authorization Act, it appears unlikely there will be a Senate vote for further stimulus.
