It’s been more than a year the COVID-19 pandemic struck our nation and the world, and our communities have paid a terrible price.
I want to assure you that during this emergency, I am working hard with my colleagues in Congress to help you, your family, and our communities remain safe, have access to appropriate medical care when needed, have the resources to make ends meet and be full participants in the national recovery effort.
That’s why I was proud to vote for the American Rescue Plan, a bold $1.9 trillion relief package that is helping to protect American lives and livelihoods.
The bill is helping our local communities and Americans nationwide address the pandemic’s economic impacts by providing direct $1,400 payments to qualified individuals, allowing unemployed workers to continue to receive unemployment benefits, increasing the Earned Income Tax Credit, investing over $50 billion for small businesses, helping homeowners struggling to make mortgage payments, reducing child poverty by expanding the Child Tax Credit, and helping families pay for funeral costs for loved ones who have died of COVID-19.
The bill is also protecting Americans’ health and safety by supporting a national vaccination campaign with community vaccination sites, investing in high-quality COVID-19 treatments, providing additional Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), and making health care coverage more affordable.
I promise I will keep working to ensure you can provide for your family and keep them safe and healthy as Congress continues working to help you and the nation recover from the pandemic. Please do not hesitate to contact my office with questions, ideas, or concerns.
Stay healthy and know that you can count on me to continue advocating on your behalf in Washington, DC.
AS A COMMUNITY AND AS A NATION, WE WILL GET THROUGH THIS TOGETHER!
