Support Volunteer Responders During COVID-19 Pandemic!

April 30, 2020

As our nation faces the historic COVID-19 crisis, we urge you to cosponsor the Volunteer Responder Incentive Protection Act of 2019 (VRIPA), HR 1241, to protect resources for approximately
one million volunteer firefighters and EMS personnel who serve on the front lines of the pandemic. Nationally, 70 percent of all firefighters are volunteers and 91 percent of fire departments are made up of all or mostly volunteer
firefighters and EMS personnel. These volunteers are undergoing unprecedented challenges as they provide essential services despite shortages of personal protective equipment (PPE) further risking their lives due to COVID-19. Now more than
ever, it is of utmost importance for Congress to ensure these volunteer departments are sufficiently equipped and staffed.

CLOSING AT COB: Letter to IRS on Rural Access to Stimulus

April 29, 2020

Please join me in sending a letter to IRS Commissioner Rettig and Treasury Secretary Mnuchin about the issues rural and low-income constituents face in accessing resources only available on IRS.gov. In my district, as is the case across the country, there
is poor to no broadband access in some areas. Tools such as the “Get My Payment” option on IRS.gov are only available online with no alternative for those without an internet connection. This means my rural constituents are unable to track their IRS economic
impact payments or update their banking and address information to ensure their stimulus payments reach them.
