Schumer Announces He Will Attempt To Pass House-Passed $2,000 Survival Checks Bill Tomorrow In Senate; Schumer Urges Senate Republicans Not To Block

December 28, 2020

Brooklyn, N.Y. – Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) tonight issued the following statement after the House passed a bill to provide American workers and families with $2,000 emergency checks:

“Following the strong bipartisan vote in the House, tomorrow I will move to pass the legislation in the Senate to quickly deliver Americans with $2,000 emergency checks. Every Senate Democrat is for this much-needed increase in emergency financial relief, which can be approved tomorrow if no Republican blocks it – there is no good reason for Senate Republicans to stand in the way.

“There’s strong support for these $2,000 emergency checks from every corner of the country -- Leader McConnell ought to make sure Senate Republicans do not stand in the way of helping to meet the needs of American workers and families who are crying out for help.”
