WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin voted to pass the American Rescue Plan in the Senate and released the following statement on her support for Wisconsin:

“We have not beaten this pandemic and people are still struggling in Wisconsin. I have supported taking bold legislative action to provide help to Wisconsin families, schools, workers and small businesses and now we are providing that help. The American Rescue Plan is the support Wisconsin needs right now to help us get past this public health crisis and move our economy forward.”

The American Rescue Plan, which has earned broad, bipartisan support from the American people despite opposition from Congressional Republicans in Washington, funds a national vaccination program so more Wisconsinites can get vaccinated quickly; delivers direct payment stimulus checks and expanded tax credits for workers and working families; extends unemployment insurance to those out of work; offers aid to small businesses struggling to keep their doors open; provides federal funding to help Wisconsin schools reopen; and emergency resources to our state and local government so local communities will have the support they need to continue providing essential services to people.
