Sen. Hawley’s proposal would dispense financial assistance to working families, while children are out of school and parents are at home, based on the number of children.
Today I am proposing an Emergency Family Relief effort to get real help into the hands of working families quickly. 30 million+ students are out of school, and more to come. Parents staying home & missing work need help - and so does our economy— Josh Hawley (@HawleyMO) March 17, 2020
We should also expand unemployment assistance, just as we do during natural disasters, to help those individuals who lose work because of this emergency— Josh Hawley (@HawleyMO) March 17, 2020
Sen. Hawley has been a resounding voice in the Senate during this epidemic, pushing for China to be held accountable:
After sickening the world, #China says #COVID19 didn’t start in Wuhan, or anywhere in China. Time to call out Beijing’s disgusting, shameless propaganda. Let’s partner with allies for a full investigation. Show the world the facts. https://t.co/DtVccd9aBL— Josh Hawley (@HawleyMO) March 17, 2020
President Trump's coronavirus task force will brief the nation again Tuesday.
