With half of the country's population under stay-at-home orders, legislation is urgently needed to help all Americans deal with this health crisis and its impact on our economy and individuals' financial health. I am currently reviewing the proposed bipartisan legislation as the Senate and House move forward and am encouraged by reports of progressive wins by Democrats.

Last night, I joined with Speaker Pelosi and my fellow House Committee Chairs to introduce the Take Resposibility for Workers and Families Act. This is a $2.5 trillion policy proposal to boldly address the impacts of the coronavirus crisis on our families, businesses, and communities. This bill seeks to rebuild our healthcare system to test and treat everyone, tighten the safety net to support families, shore up small businesses, and help state and local governments nationwide maintain essential services. More on this bill below.

Governor Cuomo's PAUSE Executive Order went into effect last night, Sunday March 22, at 8pm. All workers, except those working in essential industries, should now be working from home. I know that these closures are greatly affecting workers across our city and I want to hear how your employment has been impacted by COVID-19. You can share your story here. In addition to the workforce, college and graduate students' education has upended by COVID-19. If you are one of these students, please share your story with me here.

I wanted to remind you all that the PAUSE Executive Order from Governor Cuomo goes into effect tonight, Sunday March 22, at 8pm. As we take this important step to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus, I ask again, how can I help you? I am working with my colleagues in Congress and with leaders here in NY to make sure we have the resources we need to weather this storm, but I also want to hear from you. If you are a college student whose education has been interrupted by COVID-19, please share your story with me here and if your employment has been impacted by COVID-19, please share your story here.

How can I help you? I know that this a difficult time for everyone and in addition to helping you navigate federal resources and agencies as we all contend with the impacts of COVID-19, I think one of the most important things I can do as a public official is to share important, verified information with you frequently and reliably.

Dear Friend,

I wanted to reach out with a quick update on the government’s actions relating to COVID-19. I am closely monitoring the situation, talking with experts, and coordinating with the relevant health authorities and government agencies; however, I know that many in the public would like more information.
