Graves Votes Against COVID Relief Package

The U.S. House of Representatives passed a $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package yesterday, and Congressman Sam Graves voted against it. Graves said there is no reason to rush through this bill when Ninety percent of it has almost nothing to do with COVID. Graves said the country needs targeted relief, but this bill does very little to reopen small businesses and get children back in the classroom. He said that’s the key to recovery and that’s what leaders should be focusing on, instead of using COVID as an excuse to fund a bunch of liberal special interest priorities. The President plans to sign the bill on Friday after Congress formally sends it to the White House.
