Kaine Statement on President-elect Biden’s COVID-19 Relief Plan
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Tim Kaine released the following statement after the incoming Biden Administration announced its American Rescue Plan, an emergency relief package to address the ongoing economic and public health crises.
“I’m encouraged to see the Biden Administration already unveiling a comprehensive plan to better address COVID-19. Their plans to speed up vaccination efforts and deliver direct relief to those hit hardest will provide a ladder for Americans to climb out of the economic, social, and public health hole they were pushed into. Amid an incredibly dark winter, I’m looking forward to working with the Administration and my colleagues to pass COVID relief legislation to help people across the country receive the meaningful assistance they need.”
