During a Senate pro forma session, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell attempted to pass by unanimous consent a measure that would expand funding for the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). The PPP provides loans to small businesses to mitigate the economic fallout from the coronavirus pandemic. Maryland Senators Ben Cardin (D) and Chris Van Hollen (D) objected on the grounds that Republicans did not negotiate with Democrats and that the legislation does not provide more funding for hospitals and minority-owned business protections.
