Washington — The Senate unanimously passed a $2 trillion stimulus package March 25 aimed at helping the people, states and businesses nationwide devastated by the coronavirus pandemic.
The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act — or CARES Act — will next head to the House where a vote is expected March 27.
Following the vote, the ADA sent out an Issues Alert to dentists. In the email, ADA President Chad P. Gehani said, “For the last few weeks, the American Dental Association has advocated on your behalf as federal lawmakers debate the best way to respond to the deepening economic crisis caused by the COVID-19 outbreak. Congress is finalizing legislation that could support dentists during these exceptional circumstances, and I’d like to provide an update.”
