WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) issued the statement below following Senate passage of the American Rescue Plan:

“This package expands vaccine distribution and testing, provides direct economic support to workers and families, and supports small businesses. We are in the midst of the greatest economic crisis since the Great Depression and the most dire public health crisis in over a century. Americans need more help to get through this pandemic, and now it is on the way.”
