Pallone Applauds President-elect Biden’s Plan to Provide Economic Relief and Crush the Virus
Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Frank Pallone, Jr. (D-NJ) released the following statement on President-elect Biden’s speech tonight outlining his plan to bring an end to the COVID-19 pandemic and economic crisis:
“Tonight, President-elect Biden outlined a bold, comprehensive plan to address the worsening COVID-19 pandemic and help bring an end to this dark winter and economic crisis.
“The blueprint laid out this evening will build on the bipartisan down payment made by Congress last month. It provides additional resources and assistance, including for lifesaving vaccine distribution, increasing our testing capacity, and hiring the local public health workforce necessary to help with contact tracing and vaccine outreach. These investments will protect the health of the American people and help us crush this virus so we can rebuild our economy.
“I look forward to getting to work right away with the incoming Biden Administration to close this unprecedented chapter in our history and build a brighter future for the American people.”
