Washington, D.C. (Feb. 9, 2021)—On Friday, February 12, 2021, at 12:00 p.m. EST, Rep. Carolyn B. Maloney, the Chairwoman of the Committee on Oversight and Reform, will hold a business meeting to consider legislation that will directly provide states, localities, Tribes, and territories with funding to fight the coronavirus pandemic and its devastating economic impacts.


“As our nation continues to combat the coronavirus pandemic, Congress must take bold, urgent action to confront this crisis and show the American people that help is on the way,” Chairwoman Maloney said.  “This week, the Oversight and Reform Committee will consider legislation to provide direct funding to state and local governments striving to deliver critical services to struggling families and save the jobs of essential public servants like teachers, firefighters, and other first responders during the coronavirus pandemic.”


In addition to allocating $350 billion in funding to states, localities, Tribes, and territories, the Committee’s Fiscal Year 2021 Reconciliation Act provisions include $570 million for emergency leave for federal and postal workers, and $117 million for oversight entities to promote transparency and accountability of all federal coronavirus relief funds.
