Crushing the COVID-19 Pandemic
Our top priority is to provide the Biden Administration with the resources it needs to crush the COVID-19 pandemic. We have worked to expand the availability and administration of lifesaving vaccines and fought for the implementation of a national testing strategy so that we can end this tragic pandemic as soon as possible.
- Passed the American Rescue Plan, which provides the tools and resources necessary to crush this terrible virus: On March 10, 2021, the House passed the American Rescue Plan which will support the national effort to ramp up distribution and administration of lifesaving COVID-19 vaccines as well as the implementation of a national testing strategy that will help us quickly track and contain the virus. The legislation advanced out of the Committee on February 12, 2021.
- Held three oversight hearings on availability, distribution, and supply of COVID-19 vaccines: These hearings examined how states, vaccine manufacturers, and the Biden Administration are working to increase COVID-19 vaccines and to ensure they are equitably distributed.
