WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Neal Dunn, M.D. (FL-02) released the following statement after the House passed The Families First Coronavirus Response Act Families (H.R. 6201). This bill responds to the Coronavirus outbreak by providing free testing and financial assistance for working Americans.
“Last night’s passage of The Families First Coronavirus Response Act is an important step in our fight against Coronavirus and COVID-19. The well-being of my family, friends, and constituents is always first and foremost on my mind. I want all Americans, especially seniors, to rest their heads tonight knowing that they will have relief from the financial stresses they could potentially face from the costs involved with testing. And above all, I want every child to have guaranteed meals and proper care. I’m relieved to see both parties put people over politics in order to develop a thoughtful and effective solution. I hope that this effort will ease the stress facing America right now. It should rightfully restore a sense of confidence in our future knowing that this Congress as well as this Administration is committed to supporting those who are suffering from the epidemic.”
