The President has signed HR6074, the Coronavirus Preparedness and Response Supplemental Appropriations Act. The measure was passed earlier this week by the House and the Senate, clearing the way for the President to sign it into law.

The $8.3 billion emergency package provides nearly $7.8 billion in new discretionary spending and authorizes nearly $500 million in mandatory spending through loosening provisions on Medicare telehealth programs.

More than $400 million is directed to be disbursed to states within the first 30 days of the bill’s enactment to help them contain the outbreak. Each state is to receive no less than $4 million in funding.
