Congress Considering next COVID Relief Package

As the number of cases of COVID-19 continue to rise across different parts of the nation, Congress is currently working on putting together and passing the next phase of relief to address the crisis.  The House passed a $3 trillion relief package back in May, and the Senate has unveiled their $1 trillion package, which is being presented as a starting point for discussions.  

The USCCB has asked Catholics around the country to ask their congressional delegation to remember the most vulnerable facing homelessness, hunger, and health problems during this period of high unemployment, etc.  If you haven't done so, please consider asking Senators Hawley and Blunt to do just that as they negotiate the next relief bill.  You can do so by clicking here.
