Washington, D.C. – Congressman Adrian Smith has released the following statement after supporting the COVID-19 assistance package (H.R. 6201) negotiated by the Trump administration:
“COVID-19 presents a threat to the health of the most vulnerable among us, and Americans are rightfully taking steps to protect themselves, their families, friends, and neighbors from transmission. Many of these precautions are having a wide-ranging impact across our economy, and this package will provide needed relief to Americans, particularly to workers and employers, as we address this pandemic and work to restore the strength of our economy in its aftermath. President Trump and his administration have demonstrated critical leadership when we need it during this trying time, and I appreciate his resolve.”
H.R. 6201 passed the House with a vote of 363-40, and now awaits consideration in the United States Senate.
