Thanks to all of you that called Senators Toomey and Casey yesterday to support S 3548, the bill that will provide $2 trillion in relief for our communities due to the corona virus outbreak. Both Senators voted in favor of the bill, which passed the Senate and is now off to the House.
Now it’s time to call your Representative to make sure they know you support passage of the bill, which could come up for a vote tomorrow.
