The House of Representatives passed H.R. 6201, the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA), on Saturday, March 14, by an overwhelmingly bipartisan vote of 363-40.
The Families First Coronavirus Response Act bill offers important first steps in an initial phase that would offer immediate relief to American families that includes free coronavirus testing for everyone who needs a test (including those without insurance), paid emergency leave, enhanced unemployment insurance, strengthened food security initiatives , and increased federal funds for Medicaid to help states pay for increased costs due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Since passing the House, the bill has passed to the Senate for a vote. We need your assistance to urge the Senate to pass this bill to help hardworking Americans, including ASMP members, impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.
