WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman G. K. Butterfield (NC-01) released the following statement after the U.S. House of Representatives voted to pass H.R. 1319, the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021:

“House Democrats took decisive action today on behalf of the American people to meet the coronavirus pandemic and economic crisis head-on by passing President Biden’s American Rescue Plan,” said Congressman Butterfield.  “Tragically, the coronavirus has devastated far too many families, claiming the lives of over 500,000 Americans. Almost one year into the pandemic, many Americans in our own communities remain out of work and struggle to provide for their families and pay their bills. The need to act is clear. This bold plan is what Americans deserve and with it we will crush the virus, save lives, safely reopen schools, and provide relief to struggling Americans.”
