California Democrats are Fighting for Critical Aid that State and Local Governments Need to Pay Healthcare Workers, Police, Firefighters, Teachers and First Reponders

This Friday, Rep. TJ Cox (CA-21), will join House Democratic Policy and Communications Committee (DPCC) Co-chair Ted Lieu (CA-33) along with Reps. Porter (CA-45), Levin (CA-49), Harder (CA-10) and Rouda (CA-48) to host a press call for reporters at 9AM PT as House Democrats demand support for the region’s frontline workers in the next Coronavirus aid package. The Members will share their goals for a funding package that addresses the needs of communities impacted by the Coronavirus pandemic. 

California Democrats are fighting for critical aid that state and local governments need to pay healthcare workers, police, firefighters, teachers and other front-line public service workers during the crisis. 

Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell – who blocked such aid in the most recent package – recently said he believes states should be forced to file bankruptcy, putting the livelihoods of frontline workers at risk. Last week, President Trump indicated he would support funding for state, tribal and local governments in the next package. But this week, the President indicated he may be backtracking on that promise.
