Van Hollen Statement on Biden Executive Actions to Address Economic Impacts of COVID-19

Today, U.S. Senator Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) released the following statement regarding President Biden’s executive actions to address the economic impacts of COVID-19:

“Not only has COVID-19 had a devastating impact on the health of our communities, neighbors, families, and friends, but it has also brought many Americans to the brink of poverty. The impact the pandemic has on Marylanders’ pocketbooks is all too real – and we must provide real economic support to small businesses and families in response. President Biden’s executive actions today will jump-start an all-of-government approach to ensure that those who need our help are not being left behind. I support these efforts, and I will continue working to pass crucial relief for the American people – including direct payments and legislation like my Long-Term Unemployment Elimination Act. We must use every tool available to bolster our economy and support our workers and small businesses.”
