WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Jacky Rosen (D-NV) spoke on the Senate floor in support of the swift passage of a COVID-19 relief package that truly addresses the needs of the American people.

“The American people need our help, and they need it now,” said Senator Rosen. “COVID-19 is a global public health emergency, and it requires the full force of the U.S. government. We must act boldly and efficiently as we work to overcome this crisis and meet the needs of this moment.”

“We need real relief for families that are struggling, for our travel and tourism industries, for our small businesses, for our workers, and for state and local governments; we need a relief package that supports greater vaccine distribution and accelerates vaccine deployment,” Senator Rosen continued. “When so many in our country are hurting and struggling, we must ask ourselves why American families, why members of our communities, would deserve any less.”

“Lives are depending on us. Our states are counting on us. The whole country is looking to us to show leadership — to save lives and livelihoods. Let’s ensure we do not let them down, and pass real relief, thoughtful and targeted relief – right now,” Senator Rosen concluded.
