R.E.L.I.E.F. is on the Way!
The Senate passed the Recovery for the Economy, Livelihoods, Industries, Entrepreneurs, and Families (R.E.L.I.E.F.) Act– legislation that will provide funding to address the devastating effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. More than $1.5 billion will go to residents, small businesses, nonprofits, and more. Every Maryland family will receive $500, and individuals will receive $300. There will also be a second round of stimulus payments for those who meet specific financial criteria. Within the R.E.L.I.E.F. Act, my Senate colleagues and I voted to add the “Recovery Now Amendment.” This will help schools to reopen safely and support student learning.
