Become a Cosponsor of the COVID-19 Commission Act

April 6, 2020

Presently, the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases are over 1,030,000 across the world and over 245,000 in the United States. While we do not yet know the full impact COVID-19 will have on the nation, already more Americans have been killed by the virus than
died in the September 11, 2001 attacks.  After those attacks, the 9/11 Commission was established to provide a full accounting of the circumstances surrounding the attacks and the Commission’s recommendations drove massive reforms to how we share intelligence
and organize the government to counter terrorist threats.  It is clear that we, as a nation, are at another inflection point.  Americans today will again demand a full accounting of our level of preparedness and response to this global public health emergency.

begins, the challenge the outbreak will have on our firefighting forces is visceral. For our local police, the implementation of shelter in place orders and other community mitigation measures require healthy and robust workforces. 

CLOSING MONDAY: Letter Requesting Clarification on Eligibility for COVID-19 Relief Payments

April 6, 2020

As you know, the recently passed and signed CARES Act will provide millions of Americans with direct economic assistance during this coronavirus crisis. These recovery rebates are one-time payments of $1,200 for most adults over the age of 18 and $500 for
children under the age of 17. While a good first step, this limited, short-term aid will likely be insufficient to help many families manage this outbreak. Which is why we must ensure that most of these funds are distributed to as many Americans as possible,
as quickly as possible.
