Congresswoman Elaine Luria Announces Passage of Critical Health Care Priorities in COVID-19 Relief Package
WASHINGTON, DC—Today, Congresswoman Elaine Luria announced the inclusion of several vital health care provisions in the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 and Emergency Coronavirus Relief package, which the President recently signed into law. These provisions would bolster COVID-19 vaccine and testing deployment, reverse planned budget cuts to Medicare, and provide additional funding for personal protective equipment (PPE).
As a member of the Problem Solvers Caucus, Congresswoman Luria helped develop a framework for a COVID-19 relief package, which the Caucus introduced with a bipartisan group of Senators earlier this month. The relief package that just became law shares striking similarities with this framework, which prioritizes support for families, students, small businesses, and health care providers.
