We write to request your support for the Air Force Budget Transparency Act, which will help bring transparency to Air Force funding levels by removing the non-“blue” pass-through budget from Air Force total obligation authority.
Please join me in cosponsoring a resolution recognizing the 45th anniversary of the Fall of Saigon, an event commemorated in Vietnamese American communities across the United States. This event marks the beginning of the Vietnamese American community and
is a watershed moment for that community.
Please join me in sending a letter to congressional leadership underscoring the importance of subsidizing COBRA.
Please join us in a letter to House leadership urging them to lift the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) 500 employee cap for Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) in the next COVID-19 legislative package. As you know, FQHCs are a critical resource
for vulnerable populations, serving the uninsured, the underserved, or those enrolled in Medicaid. Their ability to provide health services to all people, regardless of their ability to pay, is crucial to the success of our ongoing efforts to combat the COVID-19
epidemic. FQHCs will also serve a larger role as people who have lost their employer-provided insurance will seek out their services.
Please join as a cosponsor of the Strengthening UI for Coronavirus Impacted Workers and Students Act. This bill would strengthen the CARES Act by including modified provisions from the House Democrats’ H.R. 6379, Take Responsibility
for Workers and Families Act, that were stripped out by the Senate Republicans.
We invite you to join as a co-sponsor of the COVID-19 Frontline Worker Recognition Resolution recognizing our frontline workers’ contributions during the coronavirus pandemic. As veterans of the military and of the nation’s defense
and intelligence agencies, we recognize that our fight against COVID-19 is America’s latest war, and that these workers are serving on the frontlines. They are our infantry and our logistics, our first and last lines of defense, and this resolution serves
as a token of our appreciation for their heroic work.
I invite you to cosponsor the Domestic Violence Public Health Emergency Guidance Act. This important legislation would require the Attorney General to provide
guidance to assist state, local, and tribal law enforcement agencies as they address increases in incidents of domestic violence exacerbated by the COVID-19 public health emergency and stay-at-home orders.
I invite you to cosponsor the Court Access Amid the Pandemic Act, which would authorize video teleconferencing and telephone conferencing of judicial proceedings during the COVID-19 emergency period. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, federal courts across
the country have changed their daily operations to work remotely in order to protect the wellbeing of the Justices, court staff, and the public from being exposed to the virus. This bill promotes access to these proceedings during the pandemic while we are
advised to not meet in person.
Please join me in urging the Federal Reserve to join the Network for Greening the Financial System (NGFS) as an active member.
