Washington, DC - Today, U.S. Representative Brenda L. Lawrence (MI-14) joined the Michigan Democratic congressional delegation in urging State Legislative Leader Shirkey and Speaker Wentworth to act on the funding passed by Congress to help Michigan families and businesses during the COVID-19 crisis. The letter sent to state leaders highlights the work of Michigan’s Members of Congress to pass funding for vaccine distribution, testing and tracing, food assistance, rental assistance and education in Michigan.

“All of us want things to return to normal. We share the same goals of wanting our kids back in school, our small businesses back on their feet, and our families safe from threats to public health. These goals can only be achieved when we all work together. Now is the time to put politics aside and do what’s right for the people of Michigan by releasing this hard-fought funding. After all, we are all Michiganders first,” the lawmakers wrote.
