WASHINGTON—Today, Rep. Tom O’Halleran (AZ-01), the Blue Dog Coalition’s Co-Chair for Communications, issued the following statement on House passage of H.R. 1319, American Rescue Plan Act of 2021:
“Today is a good day for the American people. Assistance is on the way for families struggling to keep food on the table or pay another month’s rent. With the passage of the American Rescue Plan today and President Biden’s announcement that there will be enough vaccines for all Americans by this summer, an end to this nightmare is almost in sight. This legislation is a major step to get our country back on track, and we look forward to continuing the hard work to deliver a strong economic recovery and good-paying jobs.”
