WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Senator Kamala D. Harris released the following statement on Wednesday following the passing of the $2 trillion COVID-19 aid stimulus package.

“Our country is hurting right now. Parents are trying to figure out how to put food on the table after losing their jobs. Workers on the front lines of this outbreak don’t have the proper equipment to protect themselves and others. Small businesses are struggling to keep the lights on. We are in a crisis, and the federal government must rise to the occasion to help all working people, not just corporations and Wall Street.

“While this bill is far from perfect, I voted for it because workers, small businesses, and health care providers need help right now. It will help slow the spread of the coronavirus and support families on the brink of financial ruin.

“Congress’ job is not even close to finished – things will get worse before they get better, and it’s our job to help the people who need it most. There is much more work to be done to provide assistance to families and small businesses, expand paid leave and protect homeowners and renters. I won’t let up the fight for California families and the most vulnerable among us.”
