Governor Lamont Statement on House Passage of HEROES Act

(HARTFORD, CT) – Governor Ned Lamont released the following statement regarding tonight’s vote by the U.S. House of Representatives approving the COVID-19 aid package known as the Health and Economic Recovery Omnibus Emergency Solutions (HEROES) Act:

“Governors of both parties spoke with a unified voice when we asked Congress to deliver urgently needed relief to state and local governments and the citizens we serve. The HEROES Act answers the call. It provides vital support for our health care workers, teachers, firefighters, and police officers. It enhances food assistance, preserves access to affordable health care, provides protections for those who have lost their jobs, and helps safeguard our communities. I commend Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Connecticut’s House delegation for advancing this legislation. It now is critically important that Senate Republicans set aside partisanship and bring this bill up for a vote.”
