WASHINGTON, D.C. – Last night, Congressman Pete Stauber (MN-08) voted to pass the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, bipartisan legislation that will help address the health and economic impacts of coronavirus.

Of this legislation, Congressman Stauber stated, “As more cases of coronavirus are detected in the United States, it is imperative that Congress continue to enact reforms that safeguard the health and welfare of the American people. This is not a partisan issue, so I was proud to join my colleagues on both sides of the aisle in passing legislation that will ensure free testing, give families financial certainty, expand telehealth services, and protect seniors with severe medical conditions. When faced with challenges, our nation consistently answers fear with courage, chaos with solutions, and panic with leadership. Last night, we did just that.”

Last week, Congressman Stauber also helped pass emergency supplemental funding package that provides $8.3 billion in funds to help prevent the spread of coronavirus, which President Trump subsequently signed into law.
