I wanted to update you on important legislation Democrats in the House passed last the Friday: The Heroes Act. A number of provisions I fought for were included on the bill that are important for local communities here in the Central Valley:
• This bill provide $875 billion in relief for state and local governments — that covers most of the municipalities in the Central Valley
• It helps local farmers by funding the much-needed Specialty Crop Block Grant and Emergency Dairy Donation Program
• It ramps up testing and tracing efforts — which we desperately need in order for government and local business to reopen
• Supports local first responders and protects farmworkers by providing pandemic premium pay.
Predictably, Donald Trump already called this legislation “dead on arrival.” That’s not how we negotiate — especially during a crisis. I’m going to do everything in my power to make working families in my community and across the country are taken care of and have the support they need.
Fighting for you every day,
