WASHINGTON, DC – House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement today on the emergency supplemental funding bill to respond to the coronavirus: 

“Today, I will bring to the House Floor a supplemental appropriations bill that will allocate $8.3 billion to help states, communities, and federal agencies combat the new coronavirus.  I expect it to pass with strong, bipartisan support, a recognition of the challenge we now face as a nation in containing the spread of coronavirus and preventing further loss of life.  I hope the Senate will take up this emergency funding bill swiftly and send it to the President’s desk for approval before the end of the week.  The Democratic-led House will continue to do its job and govern responsibly to meet the challenges facing our nation and its public health.”
