WASHINGTON, D.C. (AP/WKOW) -- The U.S. Senate unanimously approved a $2.2 trillion COVID-19 stimulus package.

The vote was 96-0 in favor of the proposal. Four Republican Senators were not present for Wednesday night's due to self-quarantine: Sens. John Thune, Mitt Romney, Mike Lee and Rand Paul.

The rescue package is the largest economic relief bill in U.S. history.
