American Rescue Plan
House Democrats are working diligently to pass President Biden's American Rescue Plan and deliver vital COVID relief, with the understanding that this legislation must be signed into law before lifeline unemployment benefits expire. The quicker we act the more lives can be saved and the faster our economy will recover. Multiple variant strains of the novel coronavirus are now infecting Americans across the United States, and our vaccine rollout and efforts to contain the virus are in desperate need of resources. We are in a race against time, and aggressive, bold action is needed before our communities are permanently scarred by the human and economic costs of inaction.
This reconciliation bill - the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (H.R. 1319) - is the next step forward for delivering crucial relief to the American people and achieving the goals of President Biden's American Rescue Plan.
