Washington, D.C. – House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) released the following statement commending the bipartisan coronavirus supplemental package that will provide Americans and their families with the resources necessary to tackle the economic and health challenges ahead:
“Our top priority is to ensure our citizens are safe and healthy — especially the most vulnerable. Measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus will have an impact on American families.
“It is our job to prepare for and help American workers and businesses manage that impact. Our response must be timely and targeted. That means free tests and paid sick leave.
“After taking the necessary time to make sure we get it right, this bill will ensure Americans have the support they need to care for their family and not face economic hardship. I am proud to support this bill and get America prepared to defeat this virus.”
