LAMB STATEMENT FOLLOWING PASSAGE OF THE AMERICAN RESCUE PLAN
(WASHINGTON, DC) – Representative Conor Lamb (PA-17) statement following the House of Representative’s passage of the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (H.R. 1319):
“This bill provides wartime-level funding to help end the COVID-19 pandemic. To honor the 500,000 Americans who have lost their lives, we must fight this virus to the finish, and the size and scope of this bill will allow us to do that.
“The funding in this bill will deliver vaccines quicker, make schools safer, and better support the unemployed. It will help the millions more who have lost hours at work due to the pandemic, and will protect people’s jobs, especially those who work for airlines and the public sector.
“Millions of Americans are worrying today about how to make ends meet, and when a vaccine will help them get back to normal. They deserve to see their government act with the urgency demanded by this deadly disease. The Senate should pass this bill without delay.”
