The impacts of severe winter weather in much of the Southcentral Region, along with tornado damage in North Carolina, have presented significant challenges for many of our members over the last few weeks. Please know that our thoughts and support are with you for a speedy recovery process.
As we have highlighted in previous Issue Updates, the Biden-Harris Administration has been rolling out Executive Orders (EO) and directives at a fast and furious clip, on issues that traverse the spectrum from access to health care, to immigration, to the environment.
Today we want to inform you of two important issue updates. First, highlights of the Fiscal Year 2021 omnibus appropriations package and Covid-19 relief bill, which was unveiled earlier this afternoon. The bill is 5,593 pages, and we are still reviewing, but we wanted to provide FRA Members with a “hot off the presses” quick snapshot of key provisions in the bill that are pertinent to our sector.
