President Biden Signs American Rescue Plan, Securing Direct Relief for Floridians and Billions of Dollars in Aid for the Sunshine State

This afternoon, President Biden signed the American Rescue Plan, a historic and comprehensive piece of legislation that will provide critical COVID-19 relief to Florida and get our economy back on track.  

In response, Florida Democratic Party Chair Manny Diaz released the following statement: 

“Today President Joe Biden and the Democrats delivered on their promise to provide desperately needed aid and relief to the American people. This pandemic has been devastating Florida for over a year, and now, after desperately waiting for months, help is finally here. The American Rescue Plan will make direct payments of $1400 to well over 10 million Floridians, expand unemployment insurance, cut child poverty in half, and rapidly expand vaccine access. This historic and transformational legislation will position our state to turn the tide on this pandemic, save the lives of countless Floridians, rental assistance, reduce health insurance premiums, and assist Main Street small businesses. President Biden and the Democratic Party have kept their promise to provide the American people the help they urgently need, while every single Republican in Congress voted to deny them this life saving support during this crisis.”
