Press Release

WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman John Yarmuth (KY-3), released the statement below on House passage of H.R. 6800, the Heroes Act:

“Today, the House took a substantive step forward in the ongoing federal response to COVID-19 that will provide meaningful economic relief to millions of working families, much-needed resources to frontline workers, support to state and local governments experiencing drastic revenue cuts, and a serious investment in testing, tracing, and treatment of this virus. I’m glad at least one House Republican was willing to put country above party and join Democrats in supporting this vital next step. I hope Senator Mitch McConnell will find the same courage.”
