Philadelphians Need More Covid Relief Now

Floor Speech

Date: Nov. 20, 2020
Location: Washington, DC

BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. EVANS. Madam Speaker, my constituents in Philadelphia need more COVID relief now. Many of them are worried or scared, but the Republican Senate is still focused on confirming more Trump judges.

The House passed the Heroes Act, which gives us more of what we need, an extension of the $600 of weekly unemployment subsidy, not more Trump judges;

Urgent relief for small businesses like restaurants, not more Trump judges;

Emergency rental assistance and protection from eviction or foreclosure, not more Trump judges;

Help for airline workers, not more Trump judges;

Funding, testing, tracing, treatment to crush the virus and reopen safely, not more Trump judges.

I urge the Senate to pass the Heroes Act now.
