WASHINGTON – Members of the Problem Solvers Caucus stood together Thursday to fight for what Congressman Tom Reed says is their common-sense bipartisan, bicameral COVID-19 emergency relief package.
Reed says the legislation is being supported by a rapidly growing group of Senators on both sides of the aisle, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and others to help American families, small businesses, workers, and health care providers during this crisis.
Leaders in both parties have stated support for the Problem Solvers Caucus’ framework as the basis for immediate bipartisan, bicameral legislation.
“The bipartisan, bicameral relief package we’ve put forward with our Senate partners is already generating significant support from leaders across Washington because it is right in the range of reason,” said Reed. “Millions of Americans don’t have time for Congress to continue playing games; let’s pass this common-sense emergency relief measure to ensure our communities receive the federal support they deserve.”
“We won’t leave town until we pass a bipartisan COVID-19 relief package,” said Problem Solvers Caucus Co-Chair Josh Gottheimer. “Too many families, small businesses, and communities are suffering all across our country — and that’s why the momentum around our bipartisan, bicameral framework is continuing to grow by the hour.”
Reed and other Caucus members say they won’t go home until a package is passed.
