U.S. Rep. Tom Suozzi (D-NY) and the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus, of which Suozzi is vice-chair, held a press conference on a newly introduced bipartisan and bicameral COVID-19 relief package that would deliver much-needed relief to families, businesses, workers, state and local governments, and health care providers. The bipartisan proposal would provide $908 billion in relief, with 4-months of funds that would help residents, small businesses, schools, and state and local government. The legislation has received the backing of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York.
