From the article:

The US Senate has passed a budget resolution in a step that sets up the path for Democrats to pass President Joe Biden's sweeping $1.9trn Covid-19 relief package.

The measure passed 51-50 on a party line vote with Vice President Kamala Harris casting her first-ever tie-breaking vote to tip the balance in the early hours of Friday morning.

The approval allows Democrats to push ahead with the budget reconciliation process, enabling the party to pass the relief package without Republican support.
