The President signed the last COVID-19 relief bill into law on March 27 – nearly six months ago. While it provided some much-needed help at the time, the country’s most vulnerable children and families are continuing to suffer and need more assistance. In May, the House of Representatives passed another comprehensive relief package, the HEROES Act, but the Senate has refused to bring it to a vote. Instead, last week the Senate tried–and failed–to push through an inadequate “skinny” relief bill that didn’t come close to offering the help that America’s children and families need to continue surviving this crisis.
Now, the Senate is about to go on recess without passing the additional, robust COVID-19 relief that families desperately need, likely leaving families without any more help until 2021. We can’t let that happen.
Send your Senators an email and make it clear that they can’t pack up and go home while leaving American families in crisis. It’s time for the Senate to do their job.
