Congressman Pete Stauber, R-Duluth, voted Wednesday, March 4, to pass an emergency spending package to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

This package will provide $8.3 billion in funds to expedite vaccine development, purchase essential equipment and supplies, and assist state and local health departments.

“Even though experts agree that the current risk to Americans is low, we must remain vigilant and do everything in our power to prevent the spread of the coronavirus,” Stauber stated in a news release. “The health and safety of the American people is my number one priority, so I was happy to unite with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle and deliver a spending package that will help ensure our healthcare providers, families, and communities are equipped for any outcome.”
