Audio Feature: Delgado statement on Senate coronavirus relief bill
Senate has passed a bill that increases $ for small biz, makes family farms eligible for EIDL, supports hospitals & testing. Now Sen McConnell says he would rather states DECLARE BANKRUPTCY than help our state & local gov’ts. You’ve got to be kidding me! @SenateMajLdr, be better. pic.twitter.com/9xahIj983D— Antonio Delgado (@DelgadoforNY19) April 22, 2020
Antonio Delgado, the Democrat from Rhinebeck currently representing the 19th Congressional District in Congress, released a statement April 22 mostly praising the Senate coronavirus relief bill the Senate passed, but wondering why funding for state and local governments was kept out, and wondering why Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was suggesting states declare bankruptcy instead.
