Today I was proud to vote for the Small Business COVID Relief Act of 2022, which would help rebuild Main Streets across West Virginia.

When the first round of funding went out through the #AmericanRescuePlan, 1,033 West Virginia restaurants applied for over $140 million in relief, but only 277 received funding.

I will continue fighting for bipartisan ways to support the remaining 756 West Virginia restaurants and bars that previously applied to the Restaurant Revitalization Fund but were denied. MORE:

The #AmericanRescuePlan is helping to build more affordable housing in Maricopa County.

Good things can happen when we listen to the priorities of local governments.

@POTUS: is now open for a third round of ordering.

The third round of tests available were purchased by the federal government earlier this year with funding from the #AmericanRescuePlan.

Today, we're celebrating #25YearsofNewDems!

@NewDemCoalition played a key role in passing the #AmericanRescuePlan to turn the page on the pandemic & the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law to rebuild our roads and bridges and bring high-speed internet to every community.

GOOD NEWS: I secured $7.6M from the #AmericanRescuePlan through the @US_EDA for two projects in West Virginia - water infrastructure upgrades to bolster local businesses in McDowell County and the design of a statewide broadband implementation plan. MORE:

Investing in our local communities creates good-paying jobs and spurs economic opportunity, and today’s announcement is great news for McDowell and Mercer counties and the entire region.

DeSantis doles out millions but fails to mention it mostly comes from Uncle Sam – Orlando Sentinel

I think what Gov DeSantis means to say is…

“Thank you Joe Biden and Democrats in Congress for voting to cut costs for Floridians and put $ back in pockets when they needed it. While the Florida job market is strong and equity in homes has increased, many working people…

… small business owners needed emergency fed support as a bridge through economic uncertainty. The expanded child tax credit and Affordable Care Act tax credits were godsends to Florida families. With @POTUS and @HouseDemocrats help, Floridians will enjoy a gas tax holiday too!”

+ DeSantis has given out $77 million in job growth grants since August that came from the federal #AmericanRescuePlan along with the $500M Resilient Florida Trust Fund meant to fight climate change. Even $1,000 first responder bonuses are being covered by federal stimulus money.

So, #Florida thanks you, President Biden and Rep. Val Demings (D-FL-10) Rep. Charlie Crist (D-FL-13) Rep. Lois Frankel (D-FL-21) Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL-23) Rep. Ted Deutch (D-FL-22) Rep. Darren Soto (D-FL-9) Rep. Al Lawson (D-FL-5) Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL-24) Rep. Stephanie Murphy (D-FL-7)!

And - BTW - we are grateful for that Infrastructure and Jobs Act too! 😅😉🇺🇸

It’s no secret @POTUS Biden & @HouseDemocrats saved @GovRonDesantis’ Budget 2 years running.

And the Gov has been spending BILLIONS of #AmericanRescuePlan dollars like a champ.

He can run but he can’t hide.

The message is clear: #DemocratsDeliver!

$10 billion in #AmericanRescuePlan funds have been committed to making our communities safer.

$52 million is going to Houston’s One Safe Houston Plan, which will reduce crime in the first 100 days.
