Washington -

Today’s discouraging jobs report is further evidence that our economy will continue to struggle without comprehensive federal assistance, and if it does not happen now a full recovery will likely be delayed for years. The need for further legislative relief for businesses, workers and local governments continues to be desperate. That need will only be met by a bill that is crafted under a deal by the two sides and can pass both chambers.

The COVID RELIEF NOW Coalition commends those who recognize that anything short of a bicameral, bipartisan bill will not get additional relief to those who need it most. Suffering businesses, workers and state and local governments across the country need bipartisan support to rescue our nation’s economy, call for action and continued negotiations.
