Jimmy Panetta said : “The COVID-19 pandemic has shut down large sectors of our economy, and as a result, many individuals and families who relied on a bimonthly paycheck are struggling to make ends meet and put food on the table. The CARES Act established a new program, the Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation (FPUC) program, to help alleviate some of the economic pain caused by COVID-19. Unfortunately, accessing the FPUC could impact an individual’s eligibility for critical food assistance programs like the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (CalFresh) and the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC). Our legislation, the Strengthening UI for Coronavirus Impacted Workers and Students Act, would make a necessary fix to ensure those who qualify for FPUC benefits are not kicked off these critical programs,” External link

Our local governments have been on the front lines executing critical public health and emergency services at a time when they are experiencing devastating drops in revenue. That’s why the federal government needs to continue playing its part by funding local governments of all sizes,” “The Flexibility for Localities and Eligibility Expansion (FLEX) Act of 2020 ensures that localities serving fewer than 500,000 people can access CARES Act funding provided by the federal government, and gives them the flexibility to use the funding to offset lost revenue” External link

During this unprecedented pandemic, Congressional Democrats and Republicans continue to come together and ensure that the federal government works for our constituents by providing the funding for the resources required by our communities,” “This package includes expanded unemployment insurance, direct payments to workers, and payroll and rent assistance to small businesses. The bill also provides funding for large industries with many employees to stay afloat, but mandates strict oversight procedures to protect those workers.

These problems are due in large part to the pre-funding mandate that has burdened the agency. This arbitrary mandate has done more harm than good to the agency, leading to service cuts and hindering competition with other delivery services. Today’s legislation seeks to repeal that mandate, and restore fiscal sanity to this critical service,” “The USPS Fairness Act will not only end USPS’s financial crisis but will allow the agency to hire more workers, maintain its commitments to its retirees, and invest in critical improvements” External link

Schiff did a great job running that hearing, pushing back on the Republican theatrics, and making sure the evidence is getting out there from the witnesses, not from the Republican members.

That is why for the past nine months, Democratic and Republican members of Congress and farmers and farmworkers have been at the table working tirelessly to grind out the details of legislation that protects the people that currently work in agriculture and modernizes and streamlines our immigration system for agriculture labor. It wasn’t easy and the legislation still needs to be signed into law, but the Farm Workforce Modernization Act is a big step in the right direction for a bipartisan solution that can provide the needed certainty in our agriculture communities.

The CARES Act established a new program, the Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation (FPUC) program, to help alleviate some of the economic pain caused by COVID-19. Unfortunately, accessing the FPUC could impact an individual’s eligibility for critical food assistance programs like the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (CalFresh) and the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC).
