Houlahan Makes Good On Promise: COVID Relief Is En Route
WASHINGTON – Today, Representative Chrissy Houlahan (D-PA) voted to pass the American Rescue Plan, a comprehensive relief bill aimed at containing the COVID-19 virus, increasing vaccines, accelerating the reopening process of schools and businesses, uplifting vulnerable Pennsylvanians and providing direct support to our community’s small businesses.
“I’m backing the American Rescue Plan because we need to get this virus under control once and for all,” said Houlahan. “This legislation is comprehensive – stimulus checks for Pennsylvanians, increased support for small businesses, aid for state and local governments to accelerate vaccine distribution, funds for our schools to both safely and quickly reopen, enhanced unemployment for Pennsylvanians who have lost their jobs through no fault of their own and more. We cannot afford to wait. Too many lives and livelihoods have already been lost. I urge the Senate to move expediently so we can get Pennsylvanians the relief they deserve.”
The American Rescue Plan includes:
