WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Emergency Coronavirus Preparedness and Response Supplemental Appropriations bill, H.R. 6074. Following the vote, U.S. Congresswoman Joyce Beatty (OH-03) said:

“My number one priority is the safety and well-being of my constituents—and too many lives are at stake—so as Representative of Ohio’s Third Congressional District, I voted tonight to pass the $8.3 billion Emergency Coronavirus Preparedness and Response Supplemental Appropriations bill. This piece of legislation provides over $3 billion for research and development of a vaccine and innovative treatment options; $2.2 billion in funding for prevention, preparedness, and response; and $1 billion for the purchase of pharmaceuticals and medical supplies. Now, I call on the Senate to quickly pass the piece of legislation and the president to sign it into law.”
