The massive stimulus bill approved by Congress is the biggest economic rescue package in American history. The roughly two-trillion-dollar measure was signed by President Trump today during a brief ceremony in the Oval Office, after final passage by the U.S. House.        One death every 10 minutes. That's what New York is dealing with. The state reported 134 people died in just the past 24 hours.       Pennsylvania Congressman Mike Kelly is the latest lawmaker to test positive for coronavirus. The Republican was absent for today's vote regarding the two-trillion-dollar stimulus package because he was awaiting test results. He says his symptoms are mild and will work from home until he makes a full recovery.       The parents of at least five students say they are upset after a private California school expelled their children over complaints parents made during the coronavirus outbreak. The parents were upset after the Challenger School in Santa Clara County decided to remain open, even after most public schools had been shut down because of the pandemic.        Consumer sentiment is hitting a three-year low amid the coronavirus pandemic. The University of Michigan's index of consumer attitudes dropped to 89-point-one in March. That's its lowest level since October 2016 and the fourth largest drop in nearly 50 years.        As the coronavirus rages on, Walmart is offering a way to shop without making any contact. Customers can buy their groceries through Walmart Pay. This means they won't have to worry about touching screens when checking out.
