It's good to see the United States Senate pass a* major
Coronavirus Economic Recovery package*, with a *strong bipartisan vote*.

this is about is getting help to Montanans who are suffering, both
for their health and their pocketbooks, due to the Coronavirus

I've been working hard to make sure *the voice of Montanans were
heard during negotiations for this important package.*

This package will
provide Montana workers, small business, hospitals, and state and
local governments more than a *billion dollars in emergency relief to
handle the Coronavirus outbreak.*

*The aid package puts Montana workers
first, expands unemployment insurance, helps Montana small businesses
keep and stay open, supports healthcare workers and hospitals on the
front lines fighting the virus, prioritizes rural health, accelerates
the development and manufacturing of drugs to treat and prevent the
virus, stabilizes the economy and more.*

Below are some of the critical
provisions and funding I helped secure:

$150 billion for local
and state governments - at least $1.25 billion will go to MT to help our
local and state governments recover from economic losses due to
Coronavirus. (45% must go to local governments)

$8 Billion specific for
Indian Country

$16 billion to procure personal protective
equipment and other medical supplies for federal and state response efforts.

$100 billion for hospitals and healthcare providers to ensure
they receive the support they need for COVID-19 related expenses and lost

$11 billion for drug development to treat and prevent
Coronavirus - this could save millions of lives and the economy. This is
critical to help prevent the next pandemic.

$350 billion for
small business loans, including grants that will be forgiven if employees
are retained

Six month deferral on Small Business loans

billion for unemployment insurance - this is to give relief to workers
who lost their jobs because of this pandemic.

Employers would be
able to delay the payment of their 2020 payroll taxes until 2021 and
2022, leading to approximately $300 billion of extra cash flow for

$23.5 billion for farmers and ranchers, including $9.5
billion for a new program to provide relief for livestock producers and
other commodities.

For low and middle income individuals, $1,200 tax
rebate ($2,400 couples)... plus $500 dollar per child. Eligibility
capped at $75,000 for individuals, $112,500 for head of household,
$150,000 for a joint return with a limited phase-out above those

Cost of drug will be waived when available and helps ensures

*We are strong. We're in this together. We
will get through this. *
