American Rescue Plan FBCHICAGO – State Senator Patricia Van Pelt (D-Chicago) released the following statement after the U.S. Congress passed the American Rescue Plan, which will offer COVID-19 relief to countless Americans:

"For nearly a year now, people across the nation have been struggling to cope with the ongoing effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Millions in our state alone have suffered from unemployment, business closures, the inability to pay rent, and hunger.

“The American Rescue Plan will aid those who’ve spent months suffering during this pandemic, and will likely have to cope with the aftershock as well.

“While it may not solve everything, this plan will provide relief for business owners, homeowners, families and schools. This package will truly help millions of Illinoisans catch their breath.

“More so, the funds Illinois will receive in this package will accelerate vaccine distribution, and bring us one step closer to defeating this virus.”
