Press Release

Representative Sharice Davids issued the following statement on House passage of the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, which bolsters the federal government’s response to the coronavirus outbreak:

“It’s more important now than ever that Congress works together on a coordinated, well-resourced government response to this public health crisis to help keep communities in Kansas and across the country safe. The Families First Act takes smart, strategic measures to help protect the personal safety and financial security of our families. It includes many of the vital measures I called for, such as free testing, paid sick leave to replace lost wages and help stop the spread of the virus, and strengthened food assistance for children and families. There’s a lot more work Congress must do to protect the health and economic security of the people in this country – and that’s what I’ll keep working towards,” said Davids.
