Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Thehill.com: “Harris pushes for support for cities in coronavirus relief package”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Vice President Harris on Monday pushed for Congress to provide aid to cities impacted by the coronavirus pandemic by passing the administration’s $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package.

“This plan includes critical support for those communities that have been hardest hit, keeping small businesses open and first responders on the job,” she said during her virtual keynote address at CityLab.

The package directs $350 billion in funds to state and local governments, a provision Republicans have criticized. The Senate is expected to vote on the package this week after the House passed it early Saturday morning.

“With so many people living so close together, cities have been particularly hard hit. Cities leaders around the world have responded with innovation,” Harris said, mentioning outdoor clinics, redesigned public spaces, and WiFi hot spots.

“[The] president and I are pushing the United States Congress to finish passing our American Rescue Plan so cities have the resources they need to innovate and replicate the best ideas,” she added.
