As you may have seen, the Covid relief package passed the Senate on Saturday after an all night voting session! It included the priorities we've been pushing for--the same priorities that were included in the House bill:
-$100 million for environmental justice monitoring and grants, cutting pollution and saving lives both during the pandemic and in the future
-$4.5 billion for the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program
-$500 million for drinking water and wastewater needs
-$30 billion to keep public transit systems running
If you want to see more details on the package as a whole, read here. Rather than going to a conference committee between the two chambers, the House is planning to pass the Senate version tomorrow so that President Biden can sign it yet this week.
