Sending Office: Honorable Vicente Gonzalez
Congressman Vicente Gonzalez invites you to be an original cosponsor of the America’s Frontline Protection Act. The America’s Frontline Protection Act will give the families of frontline medical personnel, including but not limited to physicians, nurses,
technicians, aides, emergency and routine transportation personnel, custodial staff, and any staff exposed to medical waste, who die from COVID-19 access to benefits. Victims’ families would be eligible for cash benefits for both economic and non-economic
This legislation is modeled after the 9/11 Victim’s Compensation Fund, administered by a Special Master within the Department of Justice.
Guaranteeing the families of our frontline personnel who have sacrificed so much have the recognition and access to adequate compensation is the least we can offer. As we adjust to the new normal, we must remember many members of our medical community will
not return and it is our responsibility to ensure their families are taken care of.
If you have any questions, or would like to become an original cosponsor of this legislation, please contact my Legislative Assistant, Chandler Smith, at Chandler.Smith@mail.house.gov by
COB today, Thursday, April 30, 2020.
