LAMB LEADS EFFORT TO ENSURE ALL ELIGIBLE CONSTITUENTS RECEIVE ECONOMIC IMPACT PAYMENT
(PITTSBURGH, PA) – Today, Representative Conor Lamb (PA-17) led a coalition of Members from the Pennsylvania Congressional delegation in a letter to Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig on behalf of constituents across Pennsylvania who have experienced difficulty in receiving the up to $1,200 Economic Impact Payment (EIP) authorized by Congress through the Coronavirus Aid Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.
“Months ago, Congress decided to send cash to the people who needed it most. But too many of our constituents still haven’t gotten the money. This is unacceptable during a crisis and should be fixed right away,” said Lamb.
To date, over 140 million Americans have received an EIP under the CARES Act. In addition to Lamb, the letter was signed by Representatives Mike Doyle (PA-18), Matt Cartwright (PA-8), Madeleine Dean (PA-4), Susan Wild (PA-7), Mary Gay Scanlon (PA-5) and Brendan Boyle (PA-2).
