Today, Congressman John Garamendi (D-CA03) voted to pass the Senate-amended “American Rescue Plan” (H.R.1319), in the U.S. House of Representatives. The bill now heads to President Biden’s desk to be signed into law this week.
The legislation includes much-needed relief to:
- Put students safely back in classrooms
- Put vaccines in arms
- Put money in people’s pockets
- Put Americans back to work.
The bill includes funding to safely re-open schools, distribute vaccinations in every American community, send an additional $1,400 stimulus check to individuals, support small businesses, and extend unemployment benefits. The legislation codifies President Biden’s COVID-19 relief plan into law and includes funding to support specific COVID-19-related initiatives in Congressman Garamendi’s Congressional District.
