The Senate voted to approve a second coronavirus aid bill Wednesday, paving the way for lawmakers to turn their attention to a third proposal that could include direct payments to Americans.

The legislation, dubbed the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, passed in a 90-8 vote, and President Donald Trump is expected to sign it into law.
