LAMB STATEMENT FOLLOWING PASSAGE OF CORONAVIRUS RELIEF PACKAGE
(WASHINGTON, DC) – Representative Conor Lamb (PA-17) issued the following statement after passage of the Omnibus Appropriations and Emergency Coronavirus Relief Package (H.R. 133), which includes a $900 billion COVID-19 relief bill:
“Too many families were stretched too thin for far too long this year. Our constituents have demanded – over and over again – that we set politics aside and just meet basic needs for cash and food.
“Finally, we are doing that in this bill, which is a credit to pragmatists in both parties who simply did not give up. We must do more in the new year without delay, but for now, the extra unemployment assistance, cash payments, and small business aid are a step in the right direction, and a reason to continue believing that our government can work if we just put the country first.”
