Congressman Hakeem Jeffries is having a telephone Town Hall to discuss the Heroes Act and the COVID-19 pandemic.

Here’s the statement from the Congressman,

“The COVID-19 pandemic has ravaged America and left millions unemployed.  New York has borne the burden of this public health crisis and our communities have experienced unthinkable pain, suffering and death.  It’s an all hands-on deck moment at every level of government.

The Heroes Act provides substantial assistance to New York and other hard-hit states so that public health, public education, public transportation, public safety and other essential services can be maintained in the midst of this pandemic.  The $3 trillion legislation supports our frontline workers and healthcare providers; bolsters coronavirus testing, tracing and treatment; creates additional direct payments to cushion the economic blow; extends unemployment benefits and will help the American people weather this storm.

This is an extraordinary crisis and the Heroes Act is a necessary and extraordinary intervention. I strongly support this legislation and thank the Speaker and our distinguished Committee Chairs for their leadership.”
