Waters: Financial Services Committee Democrats Will Keep Working Until COVID-19 Relief is Passed
Washington, DC, November 30, 2020
Today, Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA), Chairwoman of the House Committee on Financial Services, made the following statement regarding the need for Congress to pass additional COVID-19 relief legislation:
“Today, at our regularly scheduled caucus meeting of Financial Services Committee Democrats, Members expressed grave concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic and the need for the passage of bipartisan legislation to address the crisis before the House adjourns for the end of the year. Given the overwhelming number of new cases and deaths across the country, as well as rising levels of hunger, the wave of impending evictions, rising unemployment, the permanent closure of countless small businesses, and financial insecurity caused by the pandemic, it is imperative that Congress come together to pass a bill to meet America’s needs.
