WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) issued the statement below on the American Rescue Plan being signed into law by President Biden:

“Help is on the way for millions of Americans who are still shouldering the immense burden of this pandemic. This means speeding up vaccination distribution, expanded testing, direct relief to our restaurants, and child tax credits to cover 1.1 million children in Minnesota. While there is a light at the end of the tunnel, this has been an incredibly tough year, and I will keep fighting to ensure our state has what it needs to push through to the other side of this crisis.”
