Rep. David Trone Statement Ahead of Vote on American Rescue Plan

WASHINGTON — Today, Congressman David Trone (MD-06) released the following statement ahead of the House of Representatives’ vote on the American Rescue Plan, legislation aimed to mitigate the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic:

“Soon, I will vote to pass the American Rescue Plan for the folks in the Sixth District and across America that are in desperate need of help.

“Over the last year, we’ve seen the devastating effects of the pandemic on every single community. From children struggling with online learning, to families wondering how they’re going to put food on the table, to small business owners fighting to keep their doors open and employees on the payroll. The situation could not be more dire.

“The American Rescue Plan is exactly what we need to meet this moment, protect our communities, and crush this virus. We can’t get this signed into law fast enough.

“I’d like to thank President Biden for putting forth this much-needed, ambitious legislation and for making the wellbeing of the American people his top priority.

“Hope is on the way.”

Congressman David Trone was elected to the House of Representatives in November 2018 to serve the 6th District of Maryland, which includes all or part of Montgomery, Frederick, Washington, Allegany, and Garrett Counties. Trone serves on the Appropriations, Veterans’ Affairs, and Joint Economic Committees in the 117th Congress and previously served on the Education and Labor and Foreign Affairs Committees. In Congress, Trone is fighting to make progress on issues that matter to Marylanders, including the opioid epidemic, criminal justice reform, and funding for medical research.
