Congressman Aderholt Comments on CARES ACT

March 27, 2020
Press Release

Our country is going through the worst public health crisis since the flu pandemic of 1918. The Coronavirus impact is unprecedented, and as we navigate these unchartered waters it’s critical that serious, thoughtful solutions are put forward. That is why I voted in favor of the Phase 3 stimulus package today, known as the CARES Act. Although this $2 trillion bill is not perfect, I believe it is necessary as it provides vital funding for Alabama and the entire nation. President Trump and Leader McCarthy negotiated a deal that leaves no one behind, providing financial relief for families, small businesses, veterans, and rural communities that desperately need broadband infrastructure. I will continue to work with my colleagues on possible corrections to this legislation and potentially another bill this Spring if more relief is needed.

That is why I voted in favor of the Phase 3 stimulus earlier today, known as the CARES Act. It provides immediate financial relief to families, small businesses, hospitals, veterans, and rural communities across Alabama and the rest of the nation. Although this $2 trillion bill is not perfect, I believe it is a necessary and critical step in the right direction.
