A roughly $500 billion COVID-19 relief package failed to advance in the Senate today as it fell short of receiving the necessary 60 votes.

The vote on the legislation was 52-47.

Republican leaders Tuesday introduced the package, which would provide additional assistance for priorities, including small businesses, enhanced unemployment insurance, child care, COVID-19 testing and schools.

The legislation also would provide liability protections from certain lawsuits related to COVID-19.
