Today, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) distributed a press release that summarizes their recent activities and actions in response to the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), as part of the ongoing White House Task Force efforts.
With the Senate’s COVID-19 funding bill stalled all of Monday, the House has had time to release its competing legislation. We’re hearing from Capitol Hill insiders that your advocacy is making a difference in ongoing negotiations between both chambers, so please keep the pressure on your members of Congress!
The Ask: Use this email tool to include intellectual / developmental disability (I/DD) supports in provisions creating emergency funds and small business loans.
The Details: Yesterday, the Senate Republican leadership did not receive enough votes for its proposed COVID-19 stimulus package, forcing negotiations to continue between Senate Democrats and Republicans, and open up to House Democrats as well who have introduced their own package.
We know these are stressful times for everyone and the frequent action alerts are exhausting, but you are being heard and now is the time to keep speaking up loudly and clearly. Please keep up the good work by taking action today!
