Congressional action to help families and stop COVID-19

My office has replied to 22,037 messages related to this public health and economic crisis. I know lots of folks are hurting, which is why I am continuing to push for another coronavirus relief bill.

That legislation has to include even more support for widespread and rapid testing, and the production of more personal protective equipment, so we can finally control this virus to save lives and save our economy. Other nations around the globe are already doing just that and have done a much better job of controlling the virus. We should expect nothing less from the United States as well.

But we also have to help people stay afloat as we get the virus under control. That includes emergency unemployment insurance, paid family leave, and help for state and local governments to avoid severe cuts to our public schools, roads, fire departments, public health agencies, and other essential services Kansans depend on.

Here is more information on the legislation I am supporting to address this crisis, and how our team is continuing to serve you:

These are all crucial steps that we have to take to address this health and economic emergency. But given the enormous scale of this crisis, I know we can’t stop here.
