Bill Becomes Law
Americans were put first! The American Rescue Plan was signed into law.
This bill will provide:
- Direct relief payments to millions of Americans
- Extended unemployment benefits through the summer
- Increased funding for COVID-19 testing and the vaccine rollout
- 100% subsidy for laid off workers to stay on their union health care plans
- And so much more. . .
This bill is a huge win for union carpenters and American working families who will finally get the relief we need.
