From 7th District congressional representative Pramila Jayapal

On Friday, the House passed the CARES Act, the third emergency COVID-19 relief package.

This $2.2 trillion relief package has now been signed into law, and while it is not perfect, it will deliver critically needed aid to people in our district, state and across the country.

Please join me this Wednesday, April 1st at 5:00pm PT for an online briefing on what’s included in this latest relief package and how it will help you and our state.
