Let’s be clear, however, that this negotiated relief bill still falls short in addressing the needs of struggling Americans. It fails to provide state and local aid, which will leave cities like New York in a dire financial situation. But this short-term COVID relief bill will bridge the gap between now and when another relief bill is negotiated under the Biden-Harris administration.

Let’s be clear, however, that this negotiated relief bill still falls short in addressing the needs of struggling Americans. It fails to provide state and local aid, which will leave cities like New York in a dire financial situation. But this short-term COVID relief bill will bridge the gap between now and when another relief bill is negotiated under the Biden-Harris administration. Our work bringing relief to the American people is far from over, and we must redouble our efforts to bring support to, and level the playing field for marginalized communities and communities of color who have borne a disproportionate burden of the COVID19 pandemic and economic crisis” External link
