Harris breaks Senate tie to begin debate on coronavirus relief package

The Senate has approved the motion to begin debate on the $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package.

Vice-President Kamala Harris was forced to cast the tie-breaking 51st vote on the measure, after the evenly divided Senate deadlocked 50-50 on whether to take up the bill.

This is the Vice President’s third tie-breaking vote.
