Tell Your Senators: EXTEND PSP NOW!
On Saturday morning, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the American Rescue Plan, which includes extension of the Payroll Support Program (PSP) through September 30, 2021. The bill now moves to the U.S. Senate for a vote. It needs to pass and be signed by President Biden before mid-March when PSP expires.

The bill would provide $1.9 trillion in relief for Americans, including $15 billion in funds to help airlines maintain their payrolls through September. It would ensure no involuntary furloughs, no reductions to hourly pay rates, continued service to all of our communities, a cap on executive compensation for two years beyond the relief, and a ban on stock buybacks and dividends for a year beyond relief.
While there is light at the end of this very long tunnel, the pandemic is still raging; relief remains essential; and we must continue to make our voices heard. Take a moment to send a message to your Senators today, and every day, until the bill passes.
