Washington, D.C. – Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) this evening spoke on the Senate floor to provide an update on the progress being made to pass the American Rescue Plan. Below are Senator Schumer’s remarks:
The agreement that’s been reached will allow us to move forward with the American Rescue Plan and voting will resume shortly.
Senate Democrats are completely united in our belief about how important this entire bill is for our fellow Americans;
for getting the vaccine to our people;
for re-opening our schools;
for keeping American workers, families and businesses afloat;
and for putting our country on the road to a strong recovery.
Now that this agreement has been reached, we are going to power through the rest of the process and get this bill done.
Make no mistake: we are going to continue working until we get the job done.
