We need your help for an important initiative. Our nation’s airline industry is the engine of American economic growth and a vital component of national security. If permitted to go forward, the massive airline worker furloughs slated to begin on October 1 would make recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic much more difficult.
Senators Roger Wicker of Mississippi and Susan Collins of Maine have introduced the “Air Carrier Worker Support Extension Act of 2020.” Also known as S. 4634, this bill would extend the CARES Act’s Payroll Support Program (PSP) for airline workers through March 2021 by providing $28.8 billion in assistance to airlines and contractors. Delegate Stacey Plaskett of the U.S. Virgin Islands and Representative David Joyce of Ohio have introduced a companion bill, H.R. 8345.
Please take a moment to send messages to your one U.S. Representatives and two U.S. Senators, urging them to support this legislation. You may use this link.
