        Request for Cosponsor(s)

Dear Colleague:

As states and localities continue to grapple with the novel coronavirus, many have already begun to calculate the years’ worth of problems ahead due to their estimated lost tax revenue.  Already they are estimating gaping holes in their budgets and facing
incredibly difficult decisions of what services to cut in their already hurting communities. Therefore, I will be introducing the
State Operations Stabilization (SOS) Act to help make states and localities whole during and after this crisis.  The bill expands the Coronavirus Relief Fund, which was recently enacted as part of the
CARES Act, to allow states and localities to utilize these funds to make up a deficit resulting from lost tax revenue due to disruptions from the COVID-19 pandemic. This would prevent state and local governments from being forced to cut critical social,
community, and educational services to make up shortfalls due to lost income during these difficult times.

If you would like to be added to the State Operations Stabilization (SOS) Act as an original cosponsor, please email Abbie Sorrendino at
