Senate GOP ‘Skinny’ Stimulus Bill Includes Liability Protection, New PPP Round

Senate Republicans on Tuesday unveiled a “skinny” economic stimulus bill that calls for another round of Payroll Protection Program loans, a simplified loan forgiveness process and limited liability for businesses reopening during the coronavirus economic crisis.

The Senate is likely to vote on the bill later this week.  It is unlikely the measure has the votes to pass, but it could serve as the next step in the haggling over the next stimulus legislation.
